February 25th 2015: Jackie Kingdom -
The new programme has started with a very well attended meeting where new members and visitors were welcomed. The speaker for the evening was Mrs Jackie Kingdom who spoke about AE Bowles and the Gardens of Myddleton House in Enfield, in her capacity as Trustee of the AE Bowles Society.
Many of the audience know Jackie and her husband Michael, who live locally in Stebbing. The talk accompanied by wonderful illustrations and anecdotes covered the life and work of AE Bowles a renowned gardener and plant hunter and the garden he created at Myddleton House, which is being restored to its former glory thanks to a grant from The Heritage Lottery Fund. The family connection that Jackie has with AE Bowles
meant the talk was personal and heartfelt and was enjoyed by us all.
Refreshments followed and many renewed their acquaintance with Jackie and her husband.
