A wonderful opportunity to visit an eclectic mix of garden gems hidden away in the little village of Hurstpierpoint. All proceeds going to St Peter & St James Hospice
Exciting times for the 2017 Hurstpierpoint Open Gardens, opening their gates on Sunday 11th June from 13:00-17:30, with a really wide choice of gardens to suit plant enthusiasts and those who want to stroll and put their feet up now and again. It is also rumoured that there will be live music at one of the venues this year!
Thanks to some kind local Hurst gardeners, you can visit big and small gardens; some full to the brim with flowers and others with stately lawns or works-in-progress. They will be opening from the South Avenue area to Western Road/Cuckfield Road and Orchard Way. As at previous Open Garden events, there will be a hop-on, hop-off minibus service running throughout.
Locally grown plants and home-baked cakes will be on sale with more always needed. Please contact Prue if you can donate any, as they really help to add funds to the purse!
Come rain or shine, it promises to be a wonderful, sociable, interesting early summer’s afternoon, enjoyed by all ages, with the opportunity to see what’s behind those walls and hedges.
Entrance is only £6.00 for adults (to include entry to all gardens) and free for 14s and under. The website is constantly updated and will soon have a list of gardens with descriptions, so you can plan your route.
