Saddington Open Gardens[Our Open Gardens event in 2012 was a huge success (despite the awful weather) and we would like to thank everyone who made the effort to come along and support our fundraising. It was our 'first ever' open gardens and we are certain it will not be our last, however, we will not be holding the event in 2013. We may be having a Second Chance Offer in 2014 for those who missed us the first time round or for those who wish to visit us again. We will keep you posted - Watch This Space!]

The first ever Saddington Open Gardens event. Saddington is a small tranquil village set in outstanding countryside situated off A6 near Kibworth Beauchamp and Fleckney.

Approximately 14 gardens (never seen before) will be open for viewing - some small, some large - each with their own unique character and many with stunning views over the valleys and reservoir.

Relax and admire the peaceful surroundings whilst you enjoy a selection of refreshments (vegans are catered for) available at various locations within this picturesque, conservation village. The pub will also be open and serving food. There will be a variety of other fundraising events held over the 2 days including an art sale, stalls, plant sales, raffle and activities to keep children entertained.

For anyone who enjoys Flower arranging, we are holding a floral competition (entries will be displayed in St Helen's Church as part of the Open Gardens Event). Entry is free, but your interest must be registered by 16th June 2012.
Please call into Queens Florist, Kibworth to register your entry and collect further details of the competition.

Disabled access will be limited - not all gardens will be suitable for wheelchairs but all assistance will be given where possible. A FREE car park will available. Sorry, no dogs will be allowed in the gardens.

Sponsored by Glebe Garden Centre, Countesthorpe.
