Open Gardens at Hanley Swan to raise funds for local churches
Covid has affected all of us but it has affected some of institutions we take for granted too. Many people don’t realise but much of a churches income comes from weddings and funerals and Covid has severely curtailed those meaning many churches are running at a significant loss. Now restrictions are relaxing, fundraising to try and balance the books can begin in earnest.
Our first big event is the Open Gardens at Hanley Swan, which is now in it’s tenth year! Hanley Swan is a beautiful rural village at the base of the Malvern Hills. 17 Gardens will be open to visitors across the three days of the May Day Bank Holiday weekend – 1-3 May from Noon – 5pm.
As well as plenty of space to wander, light lunches and afternoon teas will be available. You can choose to indulge in waitress service at outside tables nestled in a glorious garden or if you’d rather takeaway and eat as you explore then we can accommodate that too.
Some of the gardens have hidden delights for children to explore and why not try a quick game of tennis at one stop; racquets are provided! The village apple orchard will be open and who knows there may even be some juice to try.
Most gardens are wheelchair friendly and dogs are welcome.
Toilets are available and all parking is free.
Tickets which allow entry for all three days are £6 per person and children under 16 are free. They can be purchase via eventbrite or during your visit at any of the gardens.
