Unsung gem of a quaint garden

Have your say

DonMag over 50s Group (Doncaster Mature Action Group) decided that now spring has shown its face, we would celebrate by jaunting off to see Winthrop Park at Wickersley.

Why has this previously unsung gem of a park received so little publicity - remaining a virtual secret - seeing it is now in its sixth year? It was the vision of a local couple who, after the husband recovered from a serious illness, decided to bring hope to others in creating a beautiful, quaint and quirky sensuous garden. The park now has charity status and was lucky enough to receive a visit from HRH Princess Anne not too long ago.

We meet every third Tuesday of the month at 1.30pm in Doncaster Central Library.
