Christmas outing to Edinburgh Botanical Gardens

We had our Christmas party yesterday - me, Georgia and our four regular volunteers. A little postponed due to the snow in December, but I think more enjoyable for being in January when everything seems to be a little bit dull post festivities. Rather than just going out for a meal, we always go on an expedition to a place of interest, and this year we decided to go to the Royal Botanical Gardens in Edinburgh. The weather was kind, so we had a good walk around outside loitering in the arboretum and alpine areas for the longest. Then we had a delicious meal in the restaurant in the new John Hope Gateway Centre, a quick wander around the glasshouses before back to the Gateway for a quick peek at the art exhibitions and then heading for home.

All in all a great way to say thank you to our vollies for all their hard work during the year!
