Breach and Betty’s Ground opened their gardens for visitors on 24th October to raise funds for Hospiscare. It was a great opportunity for folk to see tremendous autumn colour and the gardens in a different season from the norm. Despite the appalling weather the total number through the gates of the two gardens was 50.
Generous people came from far and wide to support us and Hospiscare, and donations were received from friends unable to come. The afternoon was a great success raising a whopping £870 in total. Judith, BJ and Mary-Anne would like to thank everyone for their generous support as well as all the kind helpers on the day, all of whom helped maintain high spirits in the rain! Watch this space for next year’s opening date.
Once again, our plans to hold some kind of event in November have been scuppered by the latest lockdown. Sadly, we must declare 2020 over in Gardening Club terms, but fear not the committee will still press forward with plans for 2021. Obviously, we would hope to be able to get the year off to a good start with a talk in January, but, like the rest of the country, we must await events and fervently hope for better things next year.
