This is a message from the Friends of Geilston Gardens
A petition that has been sent to the Scottish Parliament. As you may know Geilston Gardens is managed by the National Trust for Scotland but the property is presently "at risk" of closure. If you are concerned about the NTS policy of closing smaller properties or gardens then please consider signing the petition and asking others to do so. The petition is open until 9th of June and the Friends will be making a representation before the Petitions Committee of the Parliament at the end of June. The present chair is Joanna Lamont.
