Open Gardens Day on Sunday June 10th from 10am to 5pm.
Herne & Broomfield 16th annual Garden Safari, will take place on Sunday June 10th. We don’t have stately homes or vast acres but we have one of the biggest Open Gardens Day in Kent, there will be about 20 gardens open. The gardens range from the tiny but perfectly formed to large and lovely, with some ‘still a work in progress’. The gardens include both Herne Infant and Junior Schools, the allotment gardens in Ford Road and St Martin’s Church flowers.
Entry is by Programme (with brief descriptions of gardens and map) which costs £4 a head (accompanied children free). Programmes are available from Herne Mill, Mill Lane, Herne, CT6 7DR (near Herne Bay) and participating gardens. There will be a raffle, art display and plants for sale. Refreshments include Ploughman’s lunches, Curry, Cream Teas and Cakes, available at selected gardens.
This year the proceeds will go towards the Herne Centre Project.
Herne Mill is open from 2-5pm with a separate admission fee.
Visitors can start at Herne Mill or any garden (look out for the pennants and posters). The event is organised by Herne & Broomfield Parish Council, please phone 01227 742700 (office) or 07711 260021 (on the day) for further details.
