Open Gardens *** Open Gardens*** Open Gardens – Sunday 11 June 2017


This is an update on the upcoming Open Gardens event being held in Keinton Mandeville on Sunday 11th June.  Ten gardens will be open to the public.   Opening time will be from 1.00 pm to 5.00 p.m.. The gardens vary in size and represent a wide range of design styles, planting plans and colour combinations so whatever your tastes you should find something of interest and, of course, it is always a pleasure to look round someone else’s garden. Most important though, we are confident that you will enjoy the afternoon and at the end of the day take away with you a few ideas that you may at some time in the future wish to incorporate into your own garden.  In addition, cream teas will be served in one of the gardens and a selection of plants will be on sale at another.


Entry tickets will be on sale at all gardens, prices as follows:

 Adults  £5.00, Children 12 to 16 years  £1.00,  Children under 12  Free


Buy your tickets at the first garden you visit.  Once bought the ticket will gain you entry to all the other gardens so please hold on to it.  The best place to start will be in the lower part of Queen Street where a number of gardens will be open in that area.  All gardens will have a numbered sign outside and your ticket will give you information on the other open gardens and a map of where they are situated


We cannot guarantee the weather but we are willing it to be good. Whatever it is, please do come along for what will be a most enjoyable afternoon - rain or shine.  All proceeds will go towards church upkeep. And, for those of you who wish, there will be a sung Evensong (Wells Voluntary Choir) in Keinton Mandeville church commencing at 6.00 p.m.  


If you have any questions please do give Neill Thomas a  call on  01458 224422.
