NEWSLETTER - OLD RECTORY OPEN GARDEN AND BLUEBELL WALK

Many villagers, Horti members and those from outside the area took the opportunity to visit The Old Rectory gardens through the National Garden Scene last Sunday and a fantastic time was had by all.


The Horti trading stall was a great success and we were able to donate over £380 towards the Friends of Holy Cross. The tea stall was also doing a roaring trade.


The bluebells in the woods were fantastic and we have received a thank you for our help on the day from Will Hobhouse and an invitation to Horti Members "to come and walk around the bluebells before 15th May. Could they please only do the woods on the Sarratt side of the footpath, shut gates after themselves and stick to the main track though the wood"

DATE FOR YOUR DIARY - NEXT POP UP

Our next pop up stall on the path behind the shop will be on Saturday 29th May.

Please bring any plants that you are happy to donate from 9.30am and the stall will open from 10am.

We hope to have a wide selection of bedding plants, vegetables and perennials.

Takings will be donated to Sarratt Care.
