Visit the Beeston and Chilwell Garden Trail
Residents in Beeston and Chilwell will be opening their gardens to the public on 10-11 June 2023. A percentage of the proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to Broxtowe Women’s Project.
Each garden carries out their own fundraising for their chosen charity. This year, the garden at 2 Manor Avenue will display poetry from survivors of Domestic Abuse, alongside the sale of plants, drinks, cakes and fruit.
Andrea Lucy-Hirst, garden owner, said:
“We’ve been involved with the garden trail since 2011 and at that time I was a trustee of Broxtowe Women’s Project so naturally raised funds for the organisation. We are still happy to do that as we feel it’s a vital service for women and has a very good reputation for supporting women. We open every other year so come along for your chance to see us!”
Gardens will be open from 1-6pm each day and adult tickets are £5. Tickets can be purchased online or on the day in cash from the first garden you visit.
