Open Garden event at David and Gill Shepherd’s garden 14th July 2019

Members David and Gill Shepherd held an Open Garden event on the 14th July 2019. Gill reports that:

“The Garden Opening at Marlais and Llys Hedd was a great success. We had 127 visitors which was as many as we could cope with in gardens this size. The visitors were very complimentary about the gardens and enjoyed the contrast between the rather formal hard landscape with separate areas for floral beds. vegetables and fruit at Marlais and the informal cottage garden with a needlework exhibition next door at Llys Hedd. The delicious and generous teas were also very popular as were the interesting selection of plants for sale which had been grown by TWWPCSG founder and member Phil Burr. The opening raised £432.10 for TWWPCSG and a similar amount for The National Garden Scheme which donates over £3 million to cancer and nursing charities each year.”

We thank the Shepherds, Phil and all those involved for their hard work and the donation to our group.
