Herefordshire’s Great Spring Gardening Event, in aid of the British Red Cross, will return to Newport House, in Almeley, north Herefordshire on 26 April 2017.
Celebrating its 20th Anniversary, the 2017 event will take place in the presence of the Countess of Darnley HM Lord-Lieutenant of Herefordshire.
A stalwart on Herefordshire’s annual day trip calendar, despite adverse weather, in 2016 it welcomed 1800 visitors, from gardening enthusiasts to British Red Cross supporters and raised almost £35,000.
Visitors will have the opportunity to buy plants and flowers from specialist nurseries and enjoy locally-sourced refreshments, a tea tent and the beautiful surroundings of Newport House.
Debra Tritton, British Red Cross president for Herefordshire, Shropshire and Worcestershire, says: “We would like to thank David and Jenny Watt, the owners of Newport House, for their generosity and support in allowing us to return once again.
“We are thrilled to be located in such a spectacular setting which is usually closed to the public. The grounds are beautifully maintained and visitors will love the stunning woodland and lake, and the walled kitchen garden with its glasshouses.
“The money we raise will help us support people in crisis in Herefordshire by funding Red Cross services including support at home after a stay in hospital, wheelchair loans and transport to medical appointments – as well as first aid at events, first aid training and support in emergencies like floods or severe weather.”
What a wonderful way to have a fantastic day out and support an amazing charity.
Come and meet Team ESL there too.
