Lady Bay Open Gardens
Lady Bay Open Gardens success and dates for 2019
This year’s Lady Bay Open Gardens held on the 30 June 1 July was a resounding success with over 1300 paying adults plus hundreds of children attending over the two-day event. A total of 24 gardens of all shapes and sizes took part with families enjoying the hospitality and entertainment. Despite the high temperatures the event raised a massive £7,800 with all profits donated to the Lady Bay Community Fund and various charities nominated by garden owners. Dates for next year have been confirmed as 6 and 7 July 2019.
The chair of the Open Gardens committee Tony Papkiewicz said: “I’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone involved in making this year’s Lady Bay Open Gardens an enormous success and thanks to all our visitors too! It was another super weekend, with beautiful sunshine and fantastic gardens shown in their very best light!”
“We are looking for committee volunteers to help run the event in 2019 and also keen for any new gardens in Lady Bay to open for next year, why not give it a go? Dates for next year are confirmed as 6-7 July 2019 (12noon to 5pm each day)”.
