Green Hill House on Water Hill Lane in Warley village will be opening its garden for charity on Sunday 26th June, 11am until 5pm, as part of the National Garden Scheme (NGS). The family garden has a woodland glade, herbaceous borders, formal lawn, topiary and courtyard garden, and was recently featured in Amateur Gardening magazine (23/4/2016). Local artist, Genevieve Thompson, will be exhibiting her fused glass for both garden and home and there will be an I-Spy trail for children. Teas and plant sales will be available all day.
Admission is £3 (children free) which goes directly to the NGS who nationally raised £2.7m in 2015 for caring charities and were the biggest single donor to both Macmillan and Marie Curie. Proceeds from teas and plant sales will be for Overgate Hospice.
Please park in Stock Lane prior to the village centre and follow the signage for the 5 minute walk through to the garden – sorry there is no parking available in the immediate vicinity of the garden. Perhaps extend your walk around the village to include the cemetery with its amazing views towards Stoodley Pike, or admire Warley’s historic award-winning allotments, some of which will also be open on the day for you to step inside and enjoy.
