Gardens Open 2014

Around 450 people enjoyed this years Open Gardens Day held in aid of Wimborne in Bloom on Sunday 29th June. For the most part the day was lovely and sunny, the rain coming literally as the gardens were closing at 5o'clock.

Visitors came from near and far, including Holland and Richard Nunn, Chairman of Wimborne in Bloom speaking after the event thanked all who had made this such a successful day - the garden owners and their helpers, those serving refreshments, selling plants and, of course, the great support from the public who all seemed to have enjoyed their day exploring. Many glowing comments were very rewarding for the quality and varied content of the gardens. We were also most grateful to the Olive Branch (Hall & Woodhouse) for their sponsorship of the event which funded the posters, handbills and programmes.
