Old Newton Open Gardens - Old Newton, near Stowmarket, Suffolk.
Sunday 10th June 2018 - 11am -5pm
Old Newton’s gardens are to be open on June 10th between 11am and 5pm.
About 15 gardens will open; they range from cottage, wild-life friendly to ones more formal in style. In addition the village allotments will be on show.
Refreshments will be available in two of the open gardens. In addition there will be plant stalls in some gardens and 2 showings (11am and 2pm) of the film ‘Bygone Years of Old Newton’ in the Church Institute (IP14 4ED)
Standing on guard in many of the gardens and elsewhere around the village will be scarecrows made in response to the theme Weddings/Marriages, topical in that there will have been a very recent Royal Wedding. You will have the chance to vote for the best scarecrow.
The gardens can be found on a circular route around the village: Church Street, Chapel Road, Brown Street, Silver Street and Station Road. Each open garden will be identified by a sunflower sign and number.
Parking is available at the Village Hall (IP14 4ED) where there will be a large map of the route.
Entry is by programme £4, available at any of the open gardens. Children are free when accompanied by an adult.
The day concludes with a Songs of Praise at 6pm in St Mary’s Church (IP14 4PP)
Funds raised will go towards the upkeep of this ancient church.
