Banstead Village in Bloom's first Open Gardens event was a roaring success
Banstead Village in Bloom's first Open Gardens event was a roaring success. More than 320 visitors enjoyed wandering around 10 back gardens, enjoying some tea and cake and chatting about gardening. The Deputy Mayor, Councillor Rosemary Absalom, visited and chatted to several of the visitors. A big thank you to the residents who opened their gardens, we know they had a lot of fun too. This event will be in the calendar again for next year and we are looking for anyone who would like to open up their garden too. Thank you to all of you who attended and helped to make it such a wonderful weekend.
