HIDDEN GARDENS
Sunday 30th June

Over 650 visitors wandered around Bishop’s Waltham to look behind those anonymous garden gates. The gardens varied so much, from tiny courtyards to large open spaces; attached to new build houses and to medieval ones; recently established to ones that have been planted for hundreds of years.  Many had bright flowers, shrubs, climbers, open spaces, seats to rest on, shade, sunny spots.
A huge thank you must go to the 12 gardens who opened their gates from 11.00 – 5.00.

20 tables of competitors braved the sleet to enjoy a really thought provoking evening.  Our Quiz Master was able to use the latest technology, that has been installed in Jubilee Hall. We could all see how well, or how badly, we were doing throughout the evening.  Thank you to everyone who attended, helping us raise valuable funds towards our running costs for 2019.
