The following is a message from Anne Owen, who was the instigator and organiser of a very successful Open Garden Event in aid of Katherine House Hospice on 30th June.

(Below that is a certificate and letter from KHH).

HORLEY OPEN GARDENS – SUNDAY,30 JUNE 2019
Dear All,

I would like to say a big THANK YOU to the owners who responded to my call to open their gardens to raise money for Katharine House Hospice – Glenys & David, Brian & Sue, Jane & Jonathan, Charles & Kate, David & Di and Christiane. I know at times the task of getting the gardens ready seemed insurmountable but all of you did such a fantastic job that “The 1st Horley Open Gardens Event” raised an amazing £1458.36p. Due to your generosity of time, spirit and hard work in your gardens this event was the success it was.

The success of the day was possible, due not only the commitment of the gardeners but also to those who volunteered to make a huge variety of cakes for the event – Edna, Rita, Sue A, Sue P, Sue R, Sandra, Jane, Di, Jenny, so an enormous THANK YOU to you all. Another big THANK YOU goes to those who helped out at the gardens on the day showing people around, discussing the plants, selling plants and making & serving teas, Sue R, Sue H and Alison. The manning of the plant stall at The School House by Nick and Wendy Crosse (from Katharine House Hospice) was also greatly appreciated as was the generous amount of plants provided for sale, so a big THANK YOU to Caroline.

I hope you all enjoyed the event as much as those who visited the gardens did and would like to do this again, maybe in 2021?

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: anneowen123@btinternet.com  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
