Open Garden Success

We had a lovely time at our open garden event on Sunday 23rd July at Piermont Green. A huge thank you to Janine Wookey who kindly opened her wonderful garden to us, for our amazing team of volunteers who helped on the day and our fabulous cake bakers who baked for our tea and cake stand. Janine, is the London Regional Coordinator for the National Garden Scheme and has a very impressive knowledge of plants. One of our long standing volunteers commented that out of all the open garden events she has helped at she has never seen one as beautiful or well tended to.

Also, a very big thanks to Broomdasher for providing amazing and powerful acapella entertainment.  Good look on the upcoming tour (details here).

The total raised on the day was over £750, this is  a great total which will have a huge impact on our work supporting older people locally.

Janine will hopefully be opening for us again next year, so if you missed it this time round there will be another opportunity for you to see this garden normally hidden from public viewing.
