Garden Open Day Sunday 22nd July

Two years ago on a lovely sunny Sunday substantial funds were raised for the Church and for the Village Hall. With a fine sunny day forecast again we hope to improve on the attendance and on the income for both organisations.

We have gardens in the village centre, Oxenholme Lane, Longmeadow, at Cracalt, Fell Close as well as one special garden near Oxenholme station. The gardens will be open from 11.30am until 5.00pm. Programmes will be on sale later this month in advance at £4.00 from Natland and Oxenholme Post Offices Admission from one week before and on the day will be £5.00 at the Church door or at the more remote participating gardens.

Refreshments will be available in the village hall with proceeds from refreshments going to the village hall. If you can bake a cake for teas please contact Rhian Peters or anyone on the village hall committee.

We would also like to recruit one or two more garden owners to open their gardens. We are not looking for “show gardens “and they do not have to be large or free of all weeds. This is an opportunity to share your garden with other gardeners who are visiting to enjoy a stroll round the village on a Sunny Sunday afternoon

If you would like to chat about opening your garden please call or text Collin on 07740 447858.

We also need help publicising the event so please tell your family, friends, put it on face book, tweet about it, and let everyone know who you think would enjoy an afternoon out in some wonderful gardens.
