Aldham, west of Colchester, Essex Sunday 10th June 2018 11.00am to 5.00pm
Aldham Open Gardens is being revived after a three year break. We have a few new gardens and some have changed ownership so there is a good selection of large and small gardens to see.
The Dedham Art Society, who celebrated their 50th anniversary last year, will be holding an art exhibition in Aldham Church. The Village Hall will be open for refreshments from 11.00am, with light lunches (Ploughman's etc) available between 12.30pm and 2.00pm. Some of the open gardens will serve tea and cakes and there will be plant and cake stalls at various locations. There will also be bookstall in the church.
We are to once again have a minibus to ferry people around the village - always a popular facility which helps to avoid some congestion. Pick up the bus from Mill Race Garden Centre on New Road.
Proceeds are to be shared between The Village Hall, Friends of Aldham Church (to maintain the fabric of the church), and Cancer Research UK.
Plant sales Plant sales at the village hall and at some gardens.
Cost £5.00 adults, accompanied under 16ís free.
How to get event passports On the day from the Village Hall, the church, or most participating gardens; in advance during the week beforehand from 29 Hines Close, Aldham.
