Garden opening NGS 2014


I so sorry i haven’t visited thiis site for some time however i have been busy with various activities which i will not bore you with,however i thought i would just update on my garden opening for the NGS.

I had 215 visitors this year and made £1,050 for charity.
This year we were more organized having done it once before we knew what to expect!!

I made sure i had more help on the teas and cakes,The bar was always going to be run well by a friend who is on the verge of being an alcoholic Ha!! so had to make sure he paid for his drinks! and we had various raffles an a knitted toy stall.

All i all it was an exhausting day but the sun shined on us and We have survived another year.

I fanyone is thinking of opening their garden ,go and visit a few first so you can get an idea of what to expect.
