Whittington Open Gardens
The ‘Green Fingered Folks’ of Whittington and the surrounding area will be opening their gardens for Whittington Open Gardens 2019. With a fabulous variety of gardens, many of which having an emphasis on being wildlife-friendly, including the Community Orchard in Jubilee Park, Swan Meadow, Woodhouse Farm and St. Giles Hospice, this year’s event will take place on Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th June.
During the weekend gardens will be open between 11.00am – 5.00pm (last ticket sales 3.00pm, last entry 4.00pm), with many garden owners providing refreshments and plant sales to raise money for causes close to their hearts.
Car parking will be provided at Back Lane, with Blue Badge parking at St Giles Hospice, where tickets and programmes for the event will be on sale, as well as at the individual gardens themselves. Disability-friendly minibuses will be available to transport visitors between the gardens all day, and organisers will also be working closely with The Good Neighbour Scheme in the village to arrange an assisted transport schedule for members.
