Dinton

This year Haddenham does not have a National Gardens Scheme opening per se, but HADAC (Haddenham & District Age Concern) is hosting an open gardens event on Sunday 29th June here in the village. For more details, please see 29th June diary entry.

But keen enthusiasts looking to enjoy a peek at some open gardens sooner than that may wish to enjoy the opportunity to visit gardens at nearby Dinton next weekend.

The National Gardens Scheme exists to pass on the combined gate money from gardens across the UK to seven charities (including, and ongoing, the main cancer support charities: Macmillan, to whom the NGS is the single largest contributor; Marie Curie and Help the Hospices). Parkinson's UK also benefited by donations from the Scheme last year as a "guest charity", as it will in 2014 and 2015 too.

As part of the National Gardens Scheme 'Open Gardens' initiative, Dinton will have nine very varied gardens open for the 4 hours, from 2pm to 6pm, on Sunday 22nd June. Combined admission is £6 , children go free ( 100% of this money going to the NGS ).

Home made teas at the Village Hall are also a feature of the afternoon with proceeds going to Dinton Church Flush Fund ( fabric and major reconstruction ).

The 11th century Church will be open all afternoon. Toilets also in the Village Hall. Free parking in the Parish Field from where it is an easy and safe walk to the gardens along , or near to, the village High Street. A history of the main events of the village (Regicide, Hermit etc ) will be shown in the Village Hall. There is also a childrens' play areas in the Parish Field.
