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
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?
