Swanmore, north of Fareham, Hampshire Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th July 2021 1.00pm to 6.00pm
Hooray we will be opening again!
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. We are actively seeking different gardens and expect to recruit one or two that have not opened recently to add to our old favourites that continue to change as the years pass.
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 courtesy of Meon Valley Lions Club. You may be asked to wear a face covering whilst on the minibus and to use hand gel as you get on and off.
Teas, coffees and homemade cakes will be available from 2.00pm in the Paterson Centre. Well behaved dogs on leads are welcome.
Proceeds will be shared between St. Barnabas and Rowans 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 adults per day, with free entry for one or two accompanied under 15s per adult. Entry includes use of the hop-on-hop-off minibus.
How to get event passports Tickets are available from 12.30pm at The Paterson Centre.
Number of gardens Approximately 10 gardens will be open, but the total may vary from day to day - please contact the organisers if you need exact numbers.
