League of Friends Plant Bring and Buy Sale
On May 22nd, the League of Friends is holding a Plant Bring and Buy Sale and everyone is welcome. At 'The Barn', Haleswood, 2 The Crescent, from 10.30am-12.30pm. You may have spare perennials, vegetable plants, house plants, anything really, that you could bring and then find something that will be perfect for your garden. Coffee and tea will be available and it will be a lovely chance to see each other again.

VE Day 2020
This year many of us were able to observe the two minutes silence, whilst maintaining social distancing and to raise a glass or a cup of tea over the garden fence with their neighbours. Many people decorated their houses and front-gardens with bunting and flags. In Manwood Avenue neighbours came out to raise a glass and sing 'Pack up your troubles' in the sunshine!

Open Gardens Day 2018

tomatoes The Residents’ Association held its very successful second Open Gardens Day on June 24th when fourteen members’ gardens were open to visitors. It was a gloriously hot day and having tea and cake in Jenny’s garden rounded off a memorable afternoon. Quite apart from the beauty of the gardens, there was wine tasting and the opportunity to talk to passionate gardeners about plants, shrubs and topiary. A magnificent yurt in one garden transported visitors to the exotic East and there was a pirate ship in a tree, a bar in another garden, a suspected haha, one garden where the owner had labelled shrubs and flowers, a tranquility garden, a secret walled garden and many other intriguing glimpses into areas that we never normally have the chance to explore.

Thanks are due to the generosity of those who opened their gardens and to our visitors. We raised £675 which we shared between the League of Friends of Kent and Canterbury Hospital, the Pilgrims’ Hospice and the Samaritans. Below you can see a selection of images from the day.
