Our first Open Garden Event
On the hottest day of the year the flowers were blooming for our lovely visitors.
Ian kept the gate whilst Liz and Carol were on cakes - and gorgeous they were too - special mention for Liz's Rhubarb and Custard blondie which wowed our very special Guest Sean Wilson.

Garden cafe @ Rebecca's
Our new Ambassador and Volunteer Rebecca Jones organised and held a information and fundraising event in her wonderful garden on the hottest day of the year - exceeding the temperatures in June.
Despite the heat it was well attended and raised £250
