Standen House and Gardens

The first surprise was it was a sunny day. The second was that instead of a 61 seater coach there were two coaches due to the 61 seater needing a repair. This meant a little reorganisation and John went off to Liston Road with one coach and the other coach picked up at Spinfield and Britannia. We were lucky with the traffic and arrived in good time. Once there we were given our timed tickets for the house where the volunteers are very knowledgeable and friendly and the pianist playing added to the atmosphere of this delightful Arts & Crafts home. The promised tulips were out much to the organiser’s relief and were of course looking beautiful. We had a good journey back with our excellent drivers having had a sunny day out in beautiful West Sussex.
