Open Gardens Weekend 2021
OPEN GARDENS WEEKEND 2021 – Held over the weekend of 10th & 11th July
We were delighted that we were finally able to hold our Open Gardens Weekend on the 10th & 11th July. This was the first main public event held within the Village after the lockdowns and was a great boost for us and the Village.
Despite the very heavy rain on the Saturday, it was a resounding success. We had over 200 visitors to the 13 gardens which were open.
This means that together with the donations we received from the visitors, we raised £1,232.30 towards our Civic Society funds, and the gardeners raised over £1,600 for their selected charities, which is an amazing amount.
We have to say a very big thank you to Broughs and the Chocolate Box, who sold our tickets, the members who ran our stall on Station Road over the weekend, Iris Whitaker who organised the whole event and to all those wonderful people who opened their gardens for us.
