Secret Gardens of Bear Flat
Sunday 26th May
We are please to say that the BFA Bear Flat Secret Gardens event will take place on Sunday 26th May from 11am-3.00pm, where a number of Bear Flat residents will open their gardens to visitors for the afternoon to raise money for local charities (Dorothy House and Julian House). The event is sponsored by HIllier’s Garden Centre and is being organised in conjunction with the annual Bear Flat Artist’s Art Trail, which will be held on the same weekend, so visitors will be able both to admire gardens and purchase wonderful pieces of art and craft at the same time.
Maps of participating gardens will be available from Bath Stone Property from early May onwards. We are keen to encourage a few more enthusiastic gardeners to welcome visitors on the day. If you would like to be one of the generous residents who throw your garden open to visitors on Sunday 26th May, please contact Bob Hughes on email@example.com or 01225 310619.
