ASHWELLTHORPE GARDENS OPEN EVENT – 22 and 23 June 2013

There were sixteen gardens open to the public over these two days from one end of the village to the other, and in the middle as well! The weather could have been better but could have been a lot worse. Predominantly dry and windy with a little drizzle on the Saturday, with slightly less wind and only one brief shower on the Sunday but not much sunshine. Visitors to the gardens were very appreciative and spoke highly of the variety and amount of imagination which had gone into the design and planting and the hard work in getting all of them to look so good in their different ways, with the Spring and early Summer being so disappointing.

Ticket sales amounted to 290 adults attending and there were many children under 12 years old who were free of charge. Together with refreshments sold at the Village Hall, the amount raised for Village Hall funds was £1156 – Charity Number 303891. There is enthusiasm at present for a future Open Gardens Event in 2015.
