Downton Open Gardens
On Sunday June 26, between noon and 5pm, several gardens in the village on the Borough / High Street will be open for you to explore and enjoy, including one with an exhibition of “glass in the garden”. The blue and yellow balloons will show you which gardens are taking part. A cash donation of £5 or £10 will be requested at the first garden you visit, as the event is raising money for the DEC appeal for Ukraine and Downton 4 family.
You can help raise even more for the charities by treating yourself to tea and cake, strawberries and cream and summer punch, or by entering the raffle to win one of Lynn Purcell’s fused glass plates. There will also be a plant sale.
The organisers are sure the sun will shine, so plan to take the opportunity to visit some lovely village gardens.
