After a year out some gardens at Hernhill, Staplestreet and Dunkirk will be opening to the public again including at least one new one. There will be a selection of small and large private gardens, approximately 9 plus one allotment site to visit. Some are within easy walking distance of each other and a few are further apart. They exhibit different styles of planting and garden design at various stages of development. Some will have children’s activities and/or be selling teas, coffees, cakes and plants.
All proceeds will go to the Dawes Community Association and Hernhill Horticultural Society.
Cost: £5.00 per adult and £1.00 per accompanied child aged 4 to 16. Programmes will be available from the beginning of June at the Red Lion Pub, Hernhill and the Three Horsehoes, Staplestreet and on the day from the gardens. All are welcome to come and we look forward to seeing you. Please be aware some of the gardens are less accessible than others.
BT have advised that they will be installing the necessary equipment in April to enable fibre speed internet access for Hernhill village!
So on the 27th Sept the Parish Council meet to discuss the placement of a new BT box on the village green. We are trying to find out which houses this will serve but BT are keen to move quickly

Thanks to everyone for supporting Hernhill Open Gardens 2016. It was a good day despite the poor weather forecast, we had over 90 visitors, had many positive comments about the gardens and raised £516 which will be split between the Dawes Community Association and Hernhill Horticultural Society. The next Hernhill Open gardens is scheduled for 2018.
