David Austin ‘Open Garden’ – Fantastic Afternoon!

I am writing this to say thank you to David and Penny Austin for opening their beautifully restored garden in aid of Cleobury North Church.

A beautiful warm and sunny afternoon provided the backdrop for several hundred people to enjoy the garden with its interesting and varied planting and landscaping. I was especially interested in the water features which exploited a wonderful mix of natural, traditional and contemporary design. I know we have come away with some ideas to use in our own “patch” and with greater enthusiasm to find space for more roses!

The atmosphere was really friendly and welcoming – we met many old and some new friends.

I also want to say thank you to the stalwart members of our churches who worked to man stalls, sell raffle tickets, and serve delicious tea and cakes.

Thank you for a splendid afternoon.
