Our committee is working hard to ensure that everything comes together to make this year’s Open Gardens event just as successful as the last one or, fingers crossed, even better ! To do this we need YOUR support and involvement...
We are really keen to hear from anyone who thinks they might like to open their garden or volunteer to help out in some way. Several people have already come forward, but there is always space for more. If you are a little concerned about what this might entail, please get in touch with us for a chat. It’s not as daunting as you might think ! We’ve never had an open garden in Halstead Place - could you be the first ?
Likewise, if you are in a position to be able to donate a raffle prize, offer sponsorship of a part of the event, have any thoughts or ideas which might help the day go well, we would love to hear from you too.
Do you recall the 1960’s Flowerpot Men, Bill and Ben !?! We have decided that it would be a nice idea to hold a village competition on Open Gardens Day and award a prize for the most innovative plant pot figure displayed in a front garden for everyone to see as they walk around the village, Get your thinking caps on; there wee some amazing creations for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in 2012 !
