Gardens on show to raise hospital cash
Posted on June 8, 2006
The only place to be this Sunday is Eaton Bray for an opportunity to look at and discuss all things horticultural.
From the lowly to the grandiose, houses in the area are throwing open their gardens in the first of what the organisers hope will become an annual event.
A total of 11 gardens in the area are up for viewing between midday and 6pm, and their owners will be on hand to answer questions.
The open gardens event which includes a plant sale from 11.30am in Eaton Bray Village Hall, is part of the St Mary's parish project to raise funds for a Ugandan hospital.
There's a chance to tour both St Mary's Churches in Eaton Bray and Edlesborough and enjoy a cup of tea among the foliage in the village hall.
Visitors can either look for signs around the villages to see which gardens are open or pop to Eaton Bray Village Hall for directions. Admission is £3 (accompanied children free).
More information about the parish project can be found on www.stmaryseatonbray.org.uk
