Gardens Open raises over £4,000 in aid of Wimborne in Bloom

Take a tour around a selection of the gardens that were open and feast your eyes on some of the the autumnal colours and atmosphere that was on display:

Sunday 5th September saw Wimborne in Bloom once again able to hold it’s annual Open Gardens Day which had not been possible in 2020 and further delayed from the usual date in June. Yet again an excellent example of what is great about Wimborne – so many people really enjoying themselves walking around the 15 gardens opened by their proud owners, giving up their time readily answering the many questions asked, in ideal weather conditions.

Despite many other attractions in the area the support for this event was magnificent with over 600 people travelling from garden to garden and spending money – every penny of which will be used by Wimborne in Bloom to provide the Town’s floral displays. To say ‘thank you’ almost seems inadequate to recognise the work put in by all involved – especially those who spent so many hours ensuring their gardens were at their best even later in the season. The efforts of everyone resulted in over £4200 being raised – thank you all so much. Wimborne in Bloom would also like to thank our generous sponsor of printing and other costs – Christopher Batten, Estate Agents.
