Gardens wanted for charity open weekend next summer
Interesting gardens of all shapes and sizes are being sought by Maidenhead Rotary Club for an Open Gardens weekend in aid of charity next summer.
The event, which will run over three days from Friday,
June 25 to Sunday, June 27, will raise money for dementia research and other Rotary charities.
Organisers want to hear from the owners of gardens large and small, new or well-established and hope to include places of interest around Maidenhead that might never before have been open to the public.
The aim is to engage with as much of the community as possible and organisers are hoping that a school garden and allotments can also be included. Nearer the time advance tickets will be available online and from Braywick Heath Nursery which has already agreed to be involved.
“This is a fantastic opportunity to bring people together, especially those who have found spending time outdoors in their garden good for their wellbeing during a year of lockdown and isolation,” said Rotary Club President, Mary Spinks.
Janet Perry, one of the event’s organisers, added: “We hope owners will want to open their gardens and to exchange ideas with like-minded keen gardeners, and for all visitors to have an enjoyable weekend discovering more about some of Maidenhead’s secret gardens hidden away behind garden walls and gates.”
Some gardens will also be showcasing the work of artists and hosting stalls selling refreshments, cream teas, plants and books in aid of Rotary charities
“At this stage we are asking owners who are interested in opening their gardens to contact us to discuss how they would like to be involved,” said Janet.
