OPEN GARDEN UPDATE

June 28, 2009

As promised I thought I would tell how successful our Open Garden day was.  It was a fine and very sunny day.  John erected a gazebo, not to keep of f any rain but to keep off the sun!

We had put up posters locally  in Buxton and Bakewell and done a leaflet drop throughout Priestcliffe and Taddington.  We had encouraged all our friends and aquaintances to come along and they did.

Friends and neighbours looked after the teas, cake stall, tombola and plant stalls.   John and I seemed to mingle all afternoon and answer questions about the plants and garden construction.  We had prepared a board of photos showing the  ‘field ‘ when we first arrived and some of the stages along the way to how it looks today.

I was delighted some of my friends from Broomfield College Derby , where we did a part time RHS course, came along and made very pleasing comments.

Now for the result.  We made £500.00!

John and I took this along to the Buxton and District Summer Club and they were delighted.  It will be most useful in the financing of their holiday project for children with additional needs so we want to say a great big THANK YOU to everyone who  so generously gave their time,talents and money.
