Rattery Hidden Gardens 2019

On Sunday 16 June 2019 seven Rattery gardens were opened to the public in aid of St.Lukes Hospice. Although the weather was rather overcast with some showers early on the gardens were filled with visitors throughout the day. A total of £2406.19 was raised as a result of ticket sales and refreshments and plant sales in the village hall. A really big thank you to everyone who helped with this fantastic effort; yet another example of the teamwork and sense of community so often experienced in the parish.

If you did not have the opportunity to visit the gardens a glimpse of what you missed can be seen below. Due to the weather conditions on the day these pictures were taken at differant times.

302 people visited seven gardens in Rattery in aid of St Luke's Hospice on on Sunday 29 May 2016.
The proceeds given to St Luke's Hospice was £2012. This was made up from ticket sales to gardens, their raffle and merchandise, St Luke's plant sale plus plant sale proceeds from hall and gardens, St Luke's cards (from Heather) and donation from refreshments. A fantastic result and it seemed everyone had a very enjoyable day.
All this of course would not have happened without everyone being so happy to open their gardens and welcome visitors plus the heroic work of the tea ladies, stall holders and bus driver.

See below for slide show of photographs taken in the gardens.
