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 wonderful volunteers.
Refreshments and just a few stalls will be available, and there will also be a children’s miniature garden competition, with winners taking home a special prize. There is no entry fee, but proceeds from the open garden activities at the hospice will go directly to Weston Hospicecare, helping to support the vital work they do.
Across the road from the hospice, Westhaven School will also be opening their plant sales and greenhouse. They will generously be giving a donation to the hospice from their proceeds for the day.
‘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 as part of their Open Gardens scheme, please telephone 01934 423 926.
