THE 2nd ALDHAM OPEN GARDENS DAY (SERIES 2)

was on Sunday 9 June 2019

Carolyn Brown did a splendid job of steering and inspiring a good proportion of the village residents to put on a real village event for her second Aldham Open Gardens Day.

I was in the church nearly all day where the Art Exhibition and paperbacks attracted much attention, and I heard the very complimentary views of many punters. I was able to get out to the Village Hall for an excellent ploughman’s lunch. Refreshments, both in the village hall and at selected gardens, did well.

The list of people who are to be thanked for a very successful and enjoyable day is long, and I apologise if I’ve missed you out: there were the garden openers and their assistants; caterers and stall-holders; bakers and jammers; planters and potters; 7 minibus drivers; our display board putter uppers and taker downers; exhibition organisers and exhibitors; programme and publicity creators and distributors; sponsors and those who sought them out; and of course Carolyn and Andy Brown. Thank you all.

The Friends of Aldham Church benefitted by £2,637 from the 2019 Open Gardens Day which will be anecessary contribution for the next stage of the repair of the remaining flint cladding on the tower. Thank you, again.

Iain MacCallum, Assistant Treasurer, Aldham PCC
