On Sunday, 2nd July between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m., Weston Hospicecare will be hosting an open gardens session at its headquarters in Uphill. The gardens of Jackson-Barstow House have been lovingly maintained and tended by hospice’s gardener and wonderful volunteers.
Refreshments and various stalls will be available, and there will also be a children’s miniature garden competition, with winners taking home a special prize. Across the road from the hospice, Westhaven School will also be opening their plant sales and greenhouse.
There is no entry fee, but all proceeds from both the open garden at the hospice and the plant sales at the school will go directly to Weston Hospicecare, helping to support the vital work they do.
‘We know how gardening can help cultivate a sense of wellbeing, and we’re delighted to be able to open our wonderful gardens to the public,’ said Sally Davis, community and events manager at Weston Hospicecare. ‘We hope that keen gardeners and young budding gardeners alike will come by to enjoy refreshments, take part in the competition and help support the hospice.’
The hospice is located at 28 Thornbury Road, Weston-super-Mare, BS23 4YQ. There is a limited amount of parking available at the hospice, and visitors are requested to park considerately if they are parking along the roads nearby.
To find out more about the event, or to register your interest in opening your garden to help raise funds for the hospice, please telephone 01934 423 926.
