Womenswold Open Gardens 25/26 June 2016
The Open Gardens weekend was a great success, with 6 beautiful gardens open to visitors. To add to the enjoyment there were also teas, cakes and plants for sale. The event attracted a total of 528 visitors from as far afield as London and is the second highest total since the event started in 1995.
The event is part of the national Gardens Scheme and all entry proceeds go to charity. The charities include:- Macmillan Cancer Support, Marie Curie and Parkinsons UK. A total of £2,637,000 was raised in 2015
The total amount raised at this weekend was £4,914.16 and is the highest amount raised since we began. The money raised from selling teas, produce and plants was £2274.16 and was donated to St Margarets PCC.
Thanks from all the gardeners for the tremendous support from villagers, family and friends in baking cakes, making jams and produce . Also with helping over the weekend selling tickets, produce, teas and organising car parking. Thanks also to the volunteers in the Church, where a presentation was shown of work recently completed on the Church.
Many people come back every two years from London and elsewhere as we have a good reputation, particularly with the teas. Yes, we gardeners were thrilled, despite the downpour on Saturday and all the hard work. It was worth it!!
The Parish is made up of three communities: Woolage Village, Womenswold Village and Woolage Green. The church – St Margaret of Antioch – is situated in Womenswold village, as is the former school which is now used as a learning opportunities centre for children with special needs. The village pub – The Two Sawyers (website) – is in Woolage Green and is, in the absence of a village hall, the social hub of the Parish. The recreation ground and children’s playground are located at Woolage Village.
