Manaton garden in Launceston is opening its gates on Sunday 15 May to help raise funds for Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW) as part of Birds on Bikes' fundraising for the charity.
The four acres of landscaped spring gardens will be open to explore from 2pm – 5pm giving ample opportunity to take in the shrubs and herbaceous borders, various fruit and acer trees, the vegetable garden, sunken pool area as well as rose beds and woodland sculpture.
Homemade refreshments will be available throughout the afternoon, including cream teas, as well as a children’s wildlife trail, raffle and plant sale.
The event is being organised by Birds on Bikes; a group of ladies from the local area all taking part in Ride for Precious Lives - CHSW’s annual 225 mile cycle which will see the ladies pedal from Bristol to St Austell over three days. Funds raised from the open garden event will go towards their team sponsorship, which they hope will total £14,000 by July for CHSW.
Unfortunately no dogs are allowed into the garden apart from guide dogs, payment should be by cash only (adults £5, children under 10 free)and there is no parking on site so please use town car parks. Access is via a short, sharp climb from road to garden so for any specific access enquiries please contact 07790 372 923.
