Chawton Open Gardens 2013


Walk In The Footsteps Of Jane Austen In Her Beloved Hampshire Home - The Village Of Chawton Opens Its Gardens.

Saturday 8th & Sunday 9th June 2013 1.00 - 5.00pm. A Must For All Garden Lovers Young and Old.

Enjoy An Afternoon Exploring a number of The Villages Most Charming Gardens Including Chawton House Library & Jane Austen's House Museum.
Horse and Carriage Rides, Arts & Crafts Exhibition, Cream Teas, Plant Stalls and a Home Produce Stall.

£5.00 per Adult, Accompanied Children Free.

The outline organisation of the event is underway.

If you feel you can open your garden or would like advice as to what is involved please call me.  All gardens large or small are always of interest.

The outstanding need now is for volunteers to come forward to undertake specific tasks, notably teas in the village hall, or just a couple of hours help on either day.  This is an important revenue raiser and as such if you help or can recruit anyone else please let me know.  In addition Stewards for the gardens will be required, car park attendants, ticket sellers, additional publicity, cake makers, First Aiders etc.  All help is gratefully received.

If you are involved in an organisation that could benefit from additional funding and could spare some man-hours for the event, then please contact me with early bids.

If you have any queries or suggestions regarding the Open Gardens 2013, please contact either Mandi Sowik or Flaire Kitching.

Fireworks 2012 - Thanks and Feedback

A big thank you to everyone who attended our annual Bonfire and Fireworks event on the 3rd of November. We hope you enjoyed the evening.

We are interested in your feedback - both the good and the bad points - please provide your feedback and suggestions here. You may also use this page to enquire about lost property - we have a number of children's gloves this year.

Did you know that the Bonfire and Fireworks event is a self-funded, non-profit event where the takings go only to next years event ? This year, due to the increased attendance last year meant that we had to spend a lot more time and money licensing an event of that size.

We would also like to say a big thank you to the Chawton Bonfire and Fireworks team for another great evening. Why not come along next year and help make the Bonfire or to help with the clean-up.
