The Friends of Willoughbridge Garden Trust was set up in 1973 with the specific aim of supporting the Dorothy Clive Garden through fund raising activities. Over the years we have raised thousands of pounds which have been used to buy the entrance gates, furniture and fittings for the Tea Room, plants and pots for the Royal Botanic Glasshouse and an extended and improved facilities for the Bryan Mayer Pavilion among other things.

Would you like to join us in helping to support the garden?
