Celebrate the year of the English Garden by visiting Herne & Broomfield Garden Safari, we don't have stately homes or vast acres but we have probably the biggest Open Gardens Day in Kent, there will be 20 gardens open. The gardens range from the tiny but perfectly formed to large and lovely, with some 'still a work in progress’. The gardens include both Herne Infant and Junior Schools and the new allotment gardens in Ford Road.
Entry is by Programme (with brief descriptions of gardens and map) which costs £4 a head (accompanied children free). Programmes are available from Herne Mill, Mill Lane, Herne, CT6 7DR (near Herne Bay) and participating gardens. There will be a raffle, art display and plants for sale. Refreshments include Cream Teas and Cakes, available at selected gardens.
Proceeds will be shared between Motor Neurone Disease Association Registered Charity No. 294354 & Herne Community Centre Project.
Herne Windmill is also open from 10am with a separate admission fee.
Visitors can start at Herne Mill or any garden (look out for the pennants and posters). The event is organised by Herne & Broomfield Parish Council, please phone 01227 742700 (office) or 07711 260021 (on the day) for further details.
