Swanmore, north of Fareham, Hampshire Sunday 30th April 2017 [also Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd July] 1.00pm to 5.00pm
On the edge of the Meon Valley at the centre of the Winchester, Portsmouth and Southampton triangle, our delightful village will open a range of its gardens to visitors.
The gardens vary from small intimate village gardens to large country house gardens. Amongst our old favourites we have one or two that have not opened recently and all have, of course, changed as the years have passed.
Half of the gardens are within easy walking distance of the village centre. All could be visited with a round trip of 5 miles starting and ending at The Paterson Centre, where you will find Barnaby's, our coffee shop, which will be selling speciality teas and coffees as well as delicious homemade cakes.
Proceeds will be shared between St Barnabas and Rowan's Hospice.
Plant sales: There will be plants for sale and a plant creche will avoid the need to carry them around - just give them to the minibus driver and collect them from The Paterson Centre.
Cost: £6.00 per day. Entry includes use of the hop-on-hop-off minibus, accompanied under 14s free.
How to get event passports: Tickets are available from 12.30pm at The Paterson Centre, SO32 2PA.
