Fifteen magnificent gardens will be on display for Catcott’s annual Open Gardens on Sunday July 3rd.
Hundreds of visitors are expected to join villagers for the event which is organised by the Catcott Village Association. They will be transported between the gardens in a fleet of vintage cars provided by Vintage Wheels of Catcott. Unlimited rides are included in the ticket price and are what makes Catcott Open Gardens a unique event.
The cars operate a hop on-hop off service between the gardens through the afternoon starting from the Village Hall, Edington.
There will be a number of stalls outside the Village Hall selling plants and other items. Refreshments and ice creams will be available.
Visitors can vote for their favourite garden as they make their way round the village.
Tickets cost £7.50 and include entry to the gardens and as many rides in the cars as you like. Children under 15 are free. The tickets are available from the King William and CVA members Carol Clark and Janet Holden.
The money raised is used by the CVA to put on events for the village, subsidise the Over 60’s Lunch, put flowers in planters around the village and support village groups and organisations.
A proportion of each ticket price is donated to charities chosen by Gerry Wheeler whose Vintage Wheels business supplies the cars that make Catcott Open Gardens unique.
