Arreton Open Gardens Day took place on Sunday 26th June when five gardens were open, including Haseley Manor and Horringford House but not Arreton Manor this year. There was a plant stall and cream teas at Haseley Manor. The event raised money for the Scouts and WightDASH/WOW on the Island. WOW is a centre for disadvantaged women in Newport and WightDASH runs courses for them.
The event was very successful, with 278 people enjoying the gardens, cream teas and house tours. A total of £2,182 was raised for the nominated charities.
Thank you to all those who visited, opened their gardens or helped in any way.
