Building on three annual successes, Haddenham & District Age Concern (HADAC) is again offering lovers of beautiful English gardens another great afternoon, as it hosts its Open Gardens event to raise funds for the increasing work carried out for senior residents of the village.
Seven fine gardens, including two new ones and the allotment gardens site, will open on Sunday 28th June between 2.00pm.until 6.00pm, thanks to our dedicated and very generous friends the gardeners. From big to very small, traditional planting to ultra-modern, there will be something for all gardening enthusiasts to see, plus two plant sales stalls.
Entrance tickets are £5 per person, with escorted children free, and they will be available with a map/guide from the Scout and Guide Centre in Banks Park, by the village hall.
The Centre will also host fresh, homemade teas, a plant stall, art and craft display, plus a specialist Master Composter will be on hand to give advice.
The second plant stall will be located in Tacks Lane — so very many plants from which to choose, including perennials.
Plant donations and cakes will be very welcomed.
