Garden Opening 2014

Our NGS Garden Opening on 31st May and 1st June was a huge success. The sun shone, 338 adult visitors plus lots of children came to see the gardens, many of whom were very tempted by the wonderful array of homemade cakes on offer. The same four gardens opened in 2013. This year they raised just over £3511, more than a 50% increase on last year! And the 50% increase was reflected in the amount we raised for the tea and cakes – our highest amount ever. So our thanks to all who the members who baked cakes, donated plants, and helped out at the event.

A new member also opened her garden for the first time on 13th July, raising over £700 – a fantastic result. All the money raised will go to the mainly cancer and caring charities supported by the National Garden Scheme.
