Garden Club News – June 2019
Spring is now with us and it’s time for a spot of gardening. But, if you’d like a break from those chores, why not visit someone else’s garden? Last year we held four open gardens which proved very popular, so this year we’re doing the same. Nibbles and wine/soft drinks will be provided. Admission is free (to both members and non-members) but a donation to the host’s sponsored charity would be appreciated.
In June our Open Garden Evening is on Wednesday 26th at 6:30 pm. On this occasion, the evening will be hosted by Lucy Hutchinson at Christmas Cottage, Hayden Lane, Warnford, SO32 3LF. Lucy’s charity is Canine Partners.
Parking will be available at Warnford Village Hall car park. There will be space for two cars in Lucy’s driveway for those who won’t be able to walk up the hill but please call Lucy to check availability beforehand.
Lucy will need to know how many people to cater for so, if you’d like to visit her garden, please phone her on 01730 829 598 by Monday 24th June. She will then give you directions to get to her house from the Village Hall car park.
Date for your diary
It may be a few months off but there is already a lot of interest in our 9th October talk by Simon Cooper, well-known author and naturalist: “Life of a Chalk Stream – The River Meon from Source to Sea”. So do tell your fishing friends and anyone else interested in the countryside and its preservation about this meeting.
