In an interview for the Daily Telegraph on Monday 28 December 2015, Jools Holland compares the BBC to “museums, royal parks and public swimming baths.” I think that’s a compliment.
Guild members at our tour of Greenwich
From the start our members most wanted to be kept informed of news about The Royal Parks and to keep in touch with former colleagues and others associated with the parks. They all had one thing in common – a desire to keep the parks at the forefront of horticultural, landscape and cultural excellence. For some this would take the form of becoming a volunteer or assist The Royal Parks in its activities or perhaps supporting the apprenticeship scheme or maybe researching and recording the parks history and heritage or contributing to the newsletter. Others simply wanted to keep in touch through visits of interest whilst meeting members of the Guild and parks’ staff.
Guild master classes run in partnership with The Royal Parks
