Private gardens in Shere are opening their gates to the public this Sunday 29th June.
Whether you are a green-fingered gardener, or simply curious to wander behind the high manicured hedges and walls, Shere Open Gardens presents a glimpse into about twenty gardens and provides an enjoyable afternoon, at the same time as raising money for good causes.
There will be an over-the-wall gardeners’ question time at the allotments, a Pimms Stall and home-made teas in the village hall.
Shere is one of the most picturesque villages in Surrey nestled at the foot of the North Downs between Guildford and Dorking. Last year was a record year and about £8000 was raised for local organisations and causes.
Fingers crossed for sunshine!
