Gardener opens her 'pride and joy' to public for charity

A passionate gardener is opening up her pride and joy to the public this Sunday (June 2) as part of ongoing fundraising by Helston-Lizard Inner Wheel.

Members are raising money for BF Adventure based at Halvasso near Longdowns, as the charity the club has chosen to support for the next year.

President Linda Ford is now opening the walled gardens at her home in Sithney – a Georgian vicarage off the Helston to Hayle road.

Between noon and 5pm members of the public will be able to explore more than an acre of grounds, which include a pond, patio, arbor and pergola, all planted in the flowers and shrubs unique to Cornish gardens.

Entrance is £3 for adults and there will be a barbecue and cream teas served throughout the afternoon, as well as cakes and plants to buy.

Entertainment will be provided by Celtic Chords, a ladies’ barbershop chorus.

All proceeds raised will be donated to BF Adventure, an outdoor activity centre that helps disadvantaged, disaffected and disabled young people across the county.

Helston-Lizard Inner Wheel wants to help by building a new kitchen and lecture room at the centre.

Very nice it is here too. Beautiful garden and pond, lovely cakes and plants to buy, all in the aid of a very good cause. Sitting here in the sunshine.

Thanks, the singers here were very good too and the cream teas.

I have the Packet to thank actually, because if it wasn't for me reading about it on here, I would have known nothing about it.

So thank you Falmouth Packet.
