Open Gardens
The two-day event on June 27 and 28, which is organised by St Clare supporter Ann Gould and the Harlow Friends, is an opportunity to explore some of the area’s hidden treasures and best kept green spaces and is a must for all lovers of flora and fauna.

Harlow Museum is one of several new sites in the St Clare catchment area which will be opening its gates the public for 2015. Located in the former stables of the historic Mark Hall Manor House estate, its walled garden is home to many rare and unusual species and is the ideal picnic spot.

A total of 27 gardens in and around Harlow, Church Langley and Hastingwood are participating in this year’s Open Gardens Weekend, ranging from cottage and farmhouse gardens to courtyards and allotments.
Many of the garden owners will be providing additional attractions, such as music, raffles and plant, bric-a-brac and craft stalls, while a family fun day with a bouncy castle and children’s activities is being held at Gibson Court in Bishopsfield from 11am to 3pm on both days. Refreshments, including homemade cakes and ploughman lunches, will be available at the majority of venues.

Entry to all the participating gardens is by brochure only. They cost £3.50 each and contain all the details and locations of all the gardens that will be open over the weekend. This year’s Open Gardens Weekend is kindly sponsored by Pawley & Malyon Chartered Accountants.

Brochures are available from Ann Gould on 01279 830886 or St Clare community fundraiser James Barber on 01279 773750 or [email protected].
