Gardens, flowers and family fun at the Lady Bay Open Gardens
Saturday 4th & Sunday 5th July 2015
Now in its 24th year, the ever popular Lady Bay Open Gardens will be taking place on the weekend of 4th and 5th July between 2pm to 6pm set in the very pleasant Victorian suburban setting in Lady Bay, West Bridgford.
It has been confirmed that the Mayor of Rushcliffe, Councillor Francis Purdue- Horan will be formally opening the event which this year includes 21 gardens of all shapes and sizes plus lots of entertainment! You’re likely to see beautiful small cottage gardens, vegetable plots, wildflower meadows, formal landscaped gardens, garden art and plenty of ponds and wildlife. There will also be plant sales and information on gardening and the environment and a great chance to have a good nosey around some beautiful gardens.
Look out for entertainment and activities for all the family including music from the Community Choir, songs from the shows by Tripliquette and the Trent Navigation Company will be performing ‘Sea Shanties’ at the Lady Bay Pub and Poppy and Pint. There will also be the infamous ‘Human Jukebox’ at 42 Seymour Road who is always a great attraction! The Scout Hut on Mona Road will be serving tea and cakes as well as cream teas at Holme Lodge Cheshire Holmes on Julian Road plus there are two great pubs, cafes and other local amenities. It promises to be a great day out!
All profits will be donated to the Lady Bay Community Fund and various charities nominated by garden owners as well as fundraising for the New Scout Hut Building Fund and Leonard Cheshire Disability.
