Summer events 2015 – garden openings

Garden Opening

The second of our two garden openings for theNational Garden Scheme (NGS) will be on Saturday, 20th June between 5-8pm and Sunday, 21st June between 2-6pm. As in 2013, seven members are opening their gardens this year – too many gardens to visit in one afternoon, even for dedicated gardening enthusiasts!

The four very different gardens opening in June are:

27 Horniman Drive

28 Horniman Drive

53 Ringmore Rise

Coach House, 3 The Hermitage, Westwood Park (recently redesigned).

Combined admission is £7, payable at 28 Horniman Drive (no charge for accompanied children). There are plants for sale at 27 Horniman Drive, and garden ceramics and sculptures at the Coach House. On Sunday tea and homemade cakes are available at 53 Ringmore Rise. There will also be a Story Trail for children at 27 Horniman Drive on both days.

Members of the Garden Group have been opening their gardens since 2001 for the NGS. Last year was the best ever – just over £4000 was raised for cancer and caring charities. So do come along and help us to do even better this year.

The Garden Group meets in the evening on the first Wednesday of each month to exchange advice (and plants); arrange visits to gardens open to the public; and organise bulk purchases of gardening materials. If you would like more information, please email
