Open Gardens 2018

Following the success from last year’s Open Garden, which raised over £36,000 for the Hospice, we are delighted to announce our Open Garden season for 2018.

The gardens span the breadth of Hastings and Rother, and this year we will be opening 40 gardens and have a total of 14 days in the calendar from May to August, including gardens in Winchelsea, Westfield, Northiam, Udimore, Hastings Old Town and Mountfield to name a few.

Each week we will serve a delicious selection of refreshments, and a fantastic range of stalls selling pre-loved items from our Hospice Retail team and the ever popular plant stall*. Our team of dedicated and enthusiastic volunteers will be available to ensure you find your visit an enjoyable and memorable day out.

We would like to thank all our wonderful garden owners who so generously open their gardens, our fantastic volunteers who give their time at each event, the lovely retailers of Hastings and Rother who proudly display our booklets and all the visitors who come to the gardens and ensure vital funds are raised for the Hospice.
