The Stick and Wheel Club

We explored the differences between two gardens on the Isle of Wight, Queen Victoria's Osborne House at the north of the island, and the tropical Ventnor Gardens at the most southerly point on the island.
Although the name of the club is intended to indicate how their members may arrive there - either with a walking stick or a form of wheeled walking aid, but I saw little evidence of wheels, and most seemed to make light of their need for a stick! Just a bit of insurance, eh?
The hour's talk seemed to be thoroughly enjoyed, and the tea and home-made cake afterwards certainly was.
