Little Gardens of Sandwich, which regularly raises several thousand pounds, has been running for over 35 years and is one of the highlights of the town's summer calendar.
The gardens at St Peter’s Church and the Sandwich Library will be open for the first time alongside some of the most magical gardens in the centre of town at the annual ‘Little Gardens of Sandwich’.
A real treat is in store for garden-lovers this year as they will have the chance of a private peak at six very different gardens set behind ancient medieval walls in the centre of Sandwich and then wander along to St Mary’s Arts Centre for a delicious cream tea.
After a restorative cup of tea, visitors can take a look at a number of plant stalls set up by local specialist nurseries that will be imparting their plant knowledge and selling a wide variety of perennials, annuals, shrubs and herbs and then try their luck in the charity raffle for the chance to win an array of garden-themed prizes.
The gardens at this year’s event, which is supported by local estate agents Colebrook Sturrock, SPC design & print and The Co-Op Sandwich, are:
The gardens will be open from 2.00 pm to 5.00 pm and entry tickets for all eight locations will remain at £5 per person whilst children are welcome to come along at no extra cost. Cream teas will be priced at £3 each.
Tickets can be bought in advance from the Sandwich Tourist Office at the Guildhall and will be available on the day at each garden. All proceeds from the event go to the upkeep of St Clement’s Church in Sandwich.
“We always like to mix things up a little every year to maintain interest and the inclusion of the gardens at St Peter’s Church and The Library for the first time gives the event an extra dimension,” comments Liz Watson, chairperson of the Little Gardens Committee.
“Added to this, the unique gardens at St John’s Cottages – and indeed the cottages themselves – have an interesting tale to tell and are always very popular with visitors.”
The Little Gardens of Sandwich, which raises several thousand pounds every year, is one of the highlights of the town’s summer calendar.
