Every year around Midsummer's Day, we give 12 red roses as peppercorn rent to Naomi and David Cornelius-Reid. This beautiful tradition has a long history, originating before Naomi House first opened in 1997. 

This year, we’ve teamed up with a local blacksmith who will be hand crafting metal roses for you to treasure, gift to a friend or have in memory of a loved one.
