Chawton Open Gardens 2009 - A Thank you

ImageI would like to give a huge thankyou to all those involved in the Open Gardens Weekend in June. There was a terrific turnout, some 900 people came to our village and everyone seemed to have a great time.

An awful lot of hard work was put in by a lot of people in terms of organisation, it is difficult to name individuals but my personal thanks go to Flair Kitching and Mandi Sowik who worked tirelessly for the event.

My special thanks go to the gardeners who had made their gardens look spectacular and who without; we would not be able to host this lovely event.

The litter-pick only took 2-3 hours but collected an amazing 20 full bags of rubbish from around the village.
