Shrewsbury gardens open to public
18 May 2018

If you are wondering what to do this Sunday (20th May 2018), then look no further than the Sutton Farm Charity Open Gardens Trail in Shrewsbury.

People are invited to explore eight suburban gardens in the Sutton area of Shrewsbury from 11am to 4.30pm.

It looks like it will be a wonderful event and a chance to get some ideas for your own garden.

The garden trail is in support of the Shrewsbury-based end of life charity, Omega the national Association for End of Life Care, which supports family caregivers through and beyond their caring role.

Omega is the home of Chatterbox Action Against Loneliness, Crisis Support Programme and the Omega Motor Neurone Disease Family Support and Bereavement Programmes.

Activities during the event will include live music from the Shrewsbury Handbells and Seldom Scene Ensemble, advice from a master composter, a grand draw, teas, coffees and cakes, Dyson Design floral cards and crafts, plants and produce.

Entry to the Open Gradens Trail is by programme and costs £3 per person (children free), including a map and details of the gardens.

Programmes are available in advance from:

• Debbie & Andy 56 Tilstock Crescent SY2 6HH 01743 246 639

• Mary & Mike 44 Tilstock Crescent SY2 6HJ 01743 367 883

• Pauline & John 114 Sutton Road SY2 6RA 01743 364 560

Programmes will also be available on Sunday at 9 Sutton Road, SY2 6DE, 30 Sutton Grove, SY2 6DN and 9 Hexham Way, SY2 6QX.

Please note that dogs are allowed only by prior arrangement. Please contact Pauline and John to seek permission to bring your well-behaved pet.
