Plans are now well under way for the third Ruddington Open Gardens event, which will take place during the weekend of 2nd and 3rd July 2022, from 2pm to 6pm on both days. As previously, all proceeds from the event will go to two charities: Save the Children and Action for Children.
As well as open gardens and allotments, there will be live music and refreshments at the Methodist Church, vintage bus rides around the village, stalls and games in various gardens, and an art exhibition at the Framework Knitters Museum.
If you’d like to get involved and open your garden to visitors, we’d love to hear from you. Gardens don’t have to be big or spectacular – just attractive places that visitors will enjoy wandering around. Even a display of hanging baskets would make a welcome addition to the programme!
We will be producing programmes, including a village map, and these will be available from various places in the village, including Thomas James Estate Agents, from Wednesday 1st June.
If you’d like any further information or you are considering opening your garden, please contact either myself (firstname.lastname@example.org), Mike Davey at Ruddington Gardeners’ Association (email@example.com) or Chris Marriott at Ruddington Art & Craft Society (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Please do support this charity event if you can – we’d love to see you!
