This year’s Lansdown Open Gardens event on August 22nd was a great success with a dry sunny day at long last. Five gardens and the Millennium Green all looking resplendent in perfect summer sunshine. Thank you to everyone for coming to support the event.
Over 325 visitors came and sales of entry, teas, plants and preserves, and raffle tickets raised over £3,000, which is essential in keeping the Green as a welcoming community space for everyone.

We are very grateful to the five people who opened their gardens, to all the volunteers who manned the stalls, and to everyone who provided all those delicious cakes. Stan Scott has performed on the Green several times and we are grateful to him once again for providing excellent jazz for everyone to enjoy whilst relaxing with their tea and cake. John, our gardener, prepared the Green so that it was looking at its best, even though we were several months later with the event than we had originally anticipated.
The winning raffle ticket number was 535.
