WELLGATE GARDEN, MOREBATTLE.
Wellgate is now officialy part of the Quiet Gardens Scheme. This is a worldwide organisation that fosters the provision of quiet spaces, small and large, creating sanctuaries of still and refreshment. They are found in churches, retreat centres, schools and private gardens like Wellgate.
Anybody seeking peace and quiet in a garden can come here on both Fridays and Sundays. Of course if we are there with a little time to spare a cup of tea or coffee would be forthcoming, but part of the point of doing this is to enable people to enjoy the garden, small as it is, without involving anybody else. Wellgate is the Old Manse, is next to the kirk, a white Georgian block of a house.
We hope people will respect the garden and not nick cuttings. These can be provided if you ask: there are probably little plants potted up by the greenhouse to be purchased and small sums for charity can be left.
