A Summer event date for your diary:
Haddenham & District Age Concern (HADAC) will be hosting another of its popular Open Gardens and Allotments fundraising afternoon on Sunday 25th June, from 2.00pm to 6.00pm.
This fine community event offers a great collection of eight lovely gardens, with both large and small and traditional and modern represented. Two new gardens are listed this year and guided walks by the allotments team will also show visitors their new, cost- and water-saving, solar powered borehole system.
You can add colour and interest to your garden by visiting the HADAC plant stall, with its large number of annuals and perennials, kindly donated or produced for the day — watch out for our roadside pop-up stall from May onwards, then the main plant stall in Tacks Lane on event day.
Delicious homemade refreshments, including cream teas and cakes, will be on sale at the Scout and Guide Centre in Banks Park, where our team will welcome you as you rest your feet during your walkabout!
All proceeds are used in support of Haddenham Age Concern and our elderly residents. Entrance ticket sales for the gardens and allotments, plus Maps and Guides, Toilets and Parking are based at the Scout and Guide Centre.
The cost is only £5.00 for adults, with escorted children free of charge.
Please contact Graham Oliver for more information or to discuss any plant donations you may like to make — 01844 291785.
