Marlpit Community Garden Open Day 2016
Our third Open Day on 25th June was a relaxed occasion attended by a steady stream of visitors.
The three sheep and their ‘furry friends’ were a big draw. Local children and their parents headed straight for the animals where they had the opportunity to touch a snake as well as stroking the sheep, rabbits and a guinea pig. They participated in activities provided by ‘Angelica’s Rainbow’ before heading up to the gazebo for refreshments.
Excellent homemade cakes were provided by Mahesh and Kathy, and Tish brought along elderflower cordial made from Marlpit flowers. Honey from our own bees was offered for sale, but the limited supplies sold out fast.
As well as chatting and having their questions answered in the gazebo visitors were shown round the garden by Mahesh.
We were lucky with the weather for most of the event, but finished early due to heavy rain.
