West Bergholt Residents will be opening their gardens for everyone to enjoy.

This year's Open Gardens is on 1st July, with the gardens and allotments being open from 11am until 5.30pm. With a variety of gardens, the allotments and other attractions, this year's open gardens should have something for everyone. 

In addition to the beautiful gardens there will be a special Art exhibition where several pieces will be for sale. This will be held in the gardens of Bures House, Lexden Road. Also here will be the Tom Bowdidge Youth Cancer Foundation's stand which will have a tombola and games for the children. 

If you love music there will be two performances from Quire, Colchester's World Music Community Choir. 

Admission to the gardens is £5 (accompanied children free) with all proceeds going to The Tom Bowdidge Youth cancer Foundation and The Essex & Herts Air Ambulance.

Tickets will be on sale from April (with a £1 discount in April & May) from Ash's Store, the West Bergholt Pharmacy, Scissorhands and the Blue Owl. These tickets can be exchanged for an admission programme from the participating gardens and allotments on the day. 

A list of gardens will be printed in June. 

Please support this wonderful event and enjoy all things beautiful.
