18th August
Well we have had our last open day for the NGS, it turned out to be a good turnout, with 165 visitors, which we were well pleased with.
Pleased as there were two other NGS gardens open at the same time as us, and both within two miles.
There was also some sadness after opening for 16 years. We had many people who had never visited us before, and many who had been.
Several who regularly came too.
So when we were asked if they could never visit us again, it was difficult to give an answer.

We may open just for groups, at least you know how many people are coming, it's always a job to know how many cakes to make! and we don't need to put out advertising and direction signs.
The signs themselves take up two and a half hours, just to put out around Ferndown, and take down.
So we will make up our mind over this coming winter.

We will be keeping this website going so keep checking back to see what is happening.

Some of our signage collected after the gate closed on our open day.


The following day removing the laminated signs from the boards and having a general
clear up and put away.
