Gardens in Winchelsea were scheduled to open for the National Garden Scheme on Saturday 25th April 2020.
All round the country gardens open for the NGS to raise money for charity. In 2019, nationally, almost £3 million was raised. Visitors to Winchelsea’s April and June openings contributed £9,500 to that total. Most of the charities the scheme supports are nursing charities and because gardens aren’t opening they will be short of funds.
You can make a donation and help to support our nurses by going to the NGS website and making a donation online. Thank you!
Sadly we aren’t able to show you round our gardens just now, but here is a selection of pictures that we hope you will enjoy.
