News that Leonardslee Gardens at Lower Beeding have been bought and will be re-opened brought masses of support from our readers.
Our Facebook page post generated hundreds of favourable reactions and numerous comments.
Sandra Williams asked: “That’s great. Wonder if they will get the wallabies back?”
In fact, the wallabies were obviously a favourite as a number of people asked a similar question.
Brenda King was also pleased by the news: “So glad, was thinking how rundown it looks from the outside every time we drive by.”
In years gone by Leonardslee hosted various events and Sally Lerwill made a good point: “Fab news, bring back the craft fairs too, please.”
There’s no timetable announced yet as to when the gardens might re-open but, judging from the many positive comments, there will be no shortage of people interested in visiting.
