On 12th July two gardens in Warley Village took part in the National Gardens Scheme ‘Gardens Open for Charity’ – Edgeholme and Green Hill House. Both garden owners had been working for months to ensure that their gardens were in tip-top condition for the big day and on that sunny, Sunday afternoon they both looked fantastic!
As the gardens are a five minute walk apart, visitors were provided with a map noting many points of interest along the way including the pristine Warley Cemetery with its amazing views towards Stoodley Pike and the historic Warley Allotments several of which were open for visitors to view and added to the variety of the day.
In addition to enjoying the planting at both gardens visitors also had the opportunity to listen to The Garden Quartet, admire fused glass garden sculptures, learn about the history of Warley and purchase plants and gardening books. Of course another high note for many visitors were the delicious home-made cakes and scones with 110 teas being served at Green Hill and 200 cream teas at Edgeholme!
Pamela Berry of Green Hill House said, “There was a great ‘Garden Party’ feel throughout and we were astounded that 330 people visited the gardens. Most were local but we even had visitors who lived in London, Germany and New Zealand. It was a fantastic event and we are so grateful to everyone who helped make it such a successful day!”
The event raised £1,591 from gate receipts which has been passed to the NGS for distribution to Cancer and Caring charities. In addition, £1,095 was raised for Overgate Hospice through the sales of teas, plants, books and donations. An amazing result all round!

The memorial stone is now in situ in the centre of the village at the lantern fountain and looking very smart.

A consultation on the details of the scheme is now open and runs until 31st July.
In response to comments raised at the last WCA meeting on 6th July regarding notice of a special general meeting (changes to the constitution) it has been decided that another date will be set.
Members of the community can read this draft constitution on the village noticeboard and on this website and are invited to bring any relevant comments to this meeting.
At the conclusion of the meeting, members of the committee will vote on the revised constitution. Members of the community in attendance will also be invited to vote.
WCA Special General Meeting at 6:30pm on 24th August at the Maypole Inn
