Tomorrow is a sad day for the garden team as Luke Hampton moves on to pastures new.
Luke has been with us for two years working in the Landscape garden and also acting as our estate maintenance man, and as the miller.
He has been a fabulous employee. I am yet to meet anyone who doesn't like him and he is always first to raise a smile in our mess room, even on a rainy day.
Driving down from Clevedon (the Don, as Luke calls it) every day has finally got to him and he has found a job closer to home.
The gardeners will all really miss him- especially Ben who I think may cry!
So goodbye Luke and good luck with your new job.
