Good day, neighbour

Good day, neighbour

The National Botanic Garden of Wales has declared Friday September 6, 2013, to be “Meet the Neighbours day”, which means free entry for anyone able to prove they live in the SA14 and SA15 postcode areas.

The special postcode initiative includes key talks by Garden staff, behind-the-scenes tours and entertainment.

Head of Marketing, David Hardy said: “We held an SA32 Day last year and it was a big hit. Quite rightly, a number of other people living near the Garden in a different postcode said ’What about us?’ and so our SA14/15 Day was born.”

Mr Hardy added: “The idea is to really connect with people living near the Garden and to include them in our plans.  We’ve lined up a day-long schedule of talks, tours and other activities – including some which are not available to the general visitor.”

Some highlights of “SA14/15 Day” are: an ‘Under the Great Glasshouse’ tour; a ‘Meet the Director’ session, pond-dipping, ‘A Walk in the Med’ and a ‘Ghost Tour’. To claim your free entry, please bring along your council tax bill and other, separate (preferably photo) ID.

The Garden is open from 10am to 6pm. For more information, email  or call 01558 667149.
