A fabulous afternoon was had by all on Sunday at my Music in the Garden event. Thank you to everyone who managed to come. We had over 185 visitors and we raised over £1,445 for the NSPCC.
I would like to say a special thanks to Pete Sinclair, who again hosted the afternoon and sang between acts (I especially liked his Neil Diamond!), the wonderful a cappella group Vocal Eclipse who welcomed people into the garden, the Bromley Philharmonic Choir who entertained us with songs from the 60s and 70s, the barbarshop group Bromley Male Voices, and the wonderfully entertaining Frank McConnell on his guitar.
I would also like to thank the many volunteers who gave their time to serve refreshments and man stalls.
I was delighted to welcome another 154 people to the garden for my final National Garden Scheme opening for 2018. The weather stayed dry for us and I’m delighted to report that I raised just over £885 for the NGS.
The garden was again brought to life with live music from local musicians and I’m pleased to say the nearby airshow didn’t put off visitors coming. Another afternoon enjoyed by all.
We have another lovely day of weather for my first National Garden Scheme opening of the summer. It was a quieter affair to the previous week, so visitors were able to take in the full glory of the garden.
The garden was again brought to life with live music from the wonderful Vocal Eclipse and local musicians which included Frank McConnell. The Scratch Band. Keith Halford
Derek McGonigle and Ivan & Freda.
Another afternoon enjoyed by all.
I will be opening again on Sunday 19th August, 12pm – 4pm. Please note this is the same weekend of the Biggin Hill airshow, but traffic should have quietened down by the time we open. We also might get to see the Red Arrow fly by, as they often circle the sky around Biggin Hill for the show, and in previous years they have flown directly over the garden!
We had another fantastic day in the garden on Sunday 1st July 2018 for our annual Music in The Garden event. We were again very lucky with the weather, which was fantastic and had approximately 218 visitors on the day.
Thank you to everyone who came to visit my garden on Sunday 2nd July 2017. We were lucky to have fantastic weather, which really brought out the crowds. 318 people visited the garden and together we raised an amazing £2,078 for the NSPCC.
An extra thank you to The Rock Choir, The Kentones and Peter Sinclair who entertained us all afternoon, the lovely people on the stalls who gave their time and the lovely ladies who helped to keep us refreshed with delicious tea and cakes.
