Would You Like to Open Up Your Garden This Summer?

If you would like to open up and share your lovely garden with others this summer, and raise money for Katherine House Hospice, carry on reading the following from Horley resident Anne Owen…….

“Hi, I know lots of you living in the village have small and large gardens which you enjoy working in. To raise money for Katharine House Hospice, which has provided care and family support to a number of you in the village,  I would like to ask you to, please, consider opening your garden at the end of June 2019. Any worries you may have about your garden not being good enough, too small, doesn’t have the right plants or shrubs, isn’t in flower at the end of June or people won’t be interested in it are misplaced. People love to come and look at what other people have done in their gardens, what plants trees shrubs flowers; they look for ideas they can take home for their own garden and of course they all like a cup of tea and a piece of cake!

On the tea and cake front I will be organising, with others in the village, for tea and homemade cakes to be available to buy in The Old School as well as plants.  Please consider doing this this year for such a worthy cause. At the moment I have 3 gardens participating and it would be lovely to get this up to 6 or even 8.

I am contactable by email at:  or on: mobile 07835 086411. Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions or just want to have a chat about it”.

Many Thanks. Anne Owen
