Open Gardens 2015
Open Gardens Saturday/Sunday 11th & 12th July, 2-6pm each day.
We had a really exciting Open Gardens meeting on 18th March and have come up with a theme and many new ideas for this year.
We chose a Medieval Theme to coincide with the church buildings being 800 years old in 2015.
Already lots of people who live near the church have shown a positive interest in supporting this by offering to dress in character, you might even encounter a few of them wandering around the village and visiting gardens far and wide as well as imparting historical knowledge at the church itself.
Oh! And do look out for the Monk with his wheelbarrow of goodies during the days before the opening and support him as he sells his wares.
If you are opening your garden, perhaps you would like to dress in character – but this really is optional, please don’t let the thought of it stop you from opening.
There will be displays in church from the school and photos of some of the gardens.
Food during the weekend will include Cream Teas, tea/coffee/squash, cakes and scones at some gardens and a BBQ each afternoon outside the choir house.
Scarecrows or garden displays will be on anything themed either Medieval or St Edward the Confessor [I wonder how many wonderful shapes and sizes of King Ed’s we will get – oh we could have a potato growing contest!!!!! yes I know it’s not the same King Edward, but watch this space].
And something for youngsters a Fancy Dress Competition for the children again anything from the Medieval time or to do with St Edward the Confessor – Judging will take place at church, we have yet to decide on which day and at what time.
If you would like to Open Your Garden or help in any other way please do come to our next meeting on Wednesday 22nd April at 7.30pm in the Choir House [next to church], or email secretary
