12 gardens will be open around the two neighbouring villages of Cadney and Howsham. Howsham is the current CPRE Northern Lincolnshire Joint Best Kept Village competition champion in the Previous Winners category.
Both villages will have lots of red, white and blue planting throughout as we celebrate the Queen's 90th birthday. Grade 1 listed Cadney church is one of the oldest churches in the area and well worth a visit, the church will have a lovely flower display. Howsham Village Hall will have light lunches, cakes, refreshments, plant stall, raffle and tombola. Cadney Church Hall will have cakes, refreshments and the Thatched Cottage Company Ice Cream Trike parked right outside. A free minibus service will run throughout the day to take visitors between Cadney and Howsham, and visitors are encouraged to park in Howsham and take the bus to Cadney.
After visiting the Lincoln Barons last year, it inspired the organisers to do their own version, albeit on a much small budget and scale, so for younger visitors there will be dozens of ducks in gardens and public spaces, each with a clue, those completing the free treasure trail can claim a reward at Howsham Village Hall and Cadney Church Hall. As we are supporting Lindsey Lodge Hospice this year, day patients at Lindsey Lodge have decorated some ducks for us, and these will have their own mini trail around Howsham Park.
The event will be opened by Baroness Redfern at 11am where she will plant a tree in Cadney Churchyard to mark the Queen’s 90th birthday celebrations.
Maps can be bought from both Howsham Village Hall and Cadney Church Hall.
Adults £3.50, accompanied children free.
All profits to local good causes including Lindsey Lodge Hospice, our local LIVES group, Cadney Church, Howsham Village Hall and Howsham Park.
