Swanmore, north of Fareham, Hampshire Sunday 30th April 2017 [also two dates in July] 1.00pm to 5.00pm
On the edge of the Meon Valley, in the heart of the Winchester, Portsmouth and Southampton triangle, our delightful village will open a number of its gardens to visitors.
The gardens vary from small intimate village gardens, to large country house gardens. In addition to our old favourites, there are one or two new ones to enjoy this year. All have, of course, changed as the years have passed.
Most of our gardens are within easy walking distance of our start/finish point outside the Paterson Centre in Swanmore. A free shuttle bus service will be provided. Teas and coffees will be available from the Paterson Centre all afternoon.
We have a second opening on Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd July 2017.
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.
