Chawton Open Gardens 2019

Open Gardens

Chawton Gardens Open 2019 – May 25th & 26th    


You will notice that we are going slightly earlier this year, always good to see the lovely gardens at different times.


The outline organisation of the event is now under way.


If you feel you can open your garden or would like advice as to what is involved please call me. All gardens large and small are always of interest.


We always need volunteers to come forward to undertake specific tasks, notably teas in the village Hall, or just a couple of hours help on either day. This is an important revenue raiser and as such if you help or can recruit anyone else please let me know. In addition Stewards for the gardens will be required, car parking attendants, ticket sellers, additional publicity, cake makers, First Aiders Etc. All help is gratefully received.


If you are involved in an organisation that could benefit from additional funding and could spare some man-hours for the event, then please contact me with early bids.


The Art and Craft Exhibition will be an integral part of the Open Gardens and will be held in the School Hall at Chawton Primary School.

So, anyone who produces or has in the past made artwork or crafted items, be it a large display or a “one off” item, should contact Mike Bush for full details on Tel 87083 or Mob 07562370883 as soon as possible. We hope that the exhibition will be supported as it always makes a valued addition to the gardens on show over the weekend.


If you have any queries or suggestions regarding the Gardens Open 2019, please contact me or Flair Kitching and Mandi Sowik.
