Eleven wonderful gardens in the seaside village of Rock – some with sea views and all with lovely planting – will be welcoming visitors on the afternoon of Sunday 29th May, from 2-5pm.
The cost is only £5 per person to see all the gardens – or as many as you can fit in; there is no set order. This includes a Free cream tea served at seaside garden Porthilly Stream all afternoon – or at least until all 200 servings are taken! A prize raffle and plant stall will also feature in this garden.
Tickets with details are available now from Newslines, the newsagent in the Rock Shopping parade (next door to estate agent John Bray), or on the day from 1pm to 3.30pm outside The Dining Room restaurant in that same parade. Payment should be in cash.
Visitors are asked not to drive into the gardens but to park nearby and walk around. Keen walkers can park down at Ferry Point; there’s also parking available at John Bray’s car-parking field just a little way down from the shops, plus limited on-road parking around the village. (John Bray has kindly offered a limited number of Free parking passes to the first ticket buyers at The Dining Room Restaurant on the day.)
Visitors are asked to take care in the gardens and take note of the health and safety notices on tickets and on signs outside each garden.
Rock Open Gardens Day is in aid of Camel Estuary Youth Sailing, a local charity that gives local children the opportunity to learn how to sail.
