Open Garden

The Club was formed by ourselves in 1995. Since 2001 we have held regular fund raising events for charities, both local and national.

Garden In 2013, the club’s featured event was the Open Garden at the house of Elizabeth and Ian Burn. Held on the afternoon of the 31st May 2013, the weather was kind to us, giving a fine sunny day - very different to the days immediately prior to the event. Members of the club, and neighbours, kindly donated cakes and plants in addition to helping out on the day itself.

The beneficial charity for the event was Help for Heroes. As a result of entry monies, plant sales, the sale of tea and cakes plus other donations, we were able to send a cheque for £330 to Help for Heroes. However many of the entry fee donations and other donations were given with Gift Aid so Help for Heroes will eventually receive somewhat more than the £330 thanks to the taxman. Details of the work undertaken by Help for Heroes can be found on their website, Help for Heroes . Garden Vista

We would like to go on record to thank all of those people who helped to make the event the success which it was and also to those people who came along , enjoyed the garden and gave to the cause.
