Gardener visits Lawn

TV celebrity Alan Titchmarsh gave residents of a Hampshire care home a lovely surprise when he called in on them in his capacity as Deputy Lieutenant of the County. Titchmarsh, gardening expert and novelist, also took the opportunity of his visit to the Lawn, in Alton, to congratulate staff for their hard work during the pandemic.  He is pictured with resident Kathie Baines, who said: “I absolutely love gardening and always watched his TV programmes.”
