Thank you to everyone who joined us yesterday for our garden opening.
100% of entry tickets and all sales of teas and plants went to the National Gardens Scheme Charity and together we raised £1,502.
Thank you also to our team of volunteers who not only baked cakes but served teas and cakes throughout the afternoon.
We are open for the NGS Festival Weekend which aims to raise £500,000 for nursing and caring charities, including Macmillan Cancer Support, Marie Curie Cancer Care, Carers Trust and Help the Hospices. See more here
Here are some photographs taken this morning…
A quick glance at the weather this morning assures us it will be dry.
Some of the best weather in the UK today.
It may not be perfect weather for gardening but with only three days to go until the gates open to the public everyone is hard at work.
All credit goes to John, Russell and Mike who are doing everything humanly possible to show the garden at its best and make sure our visitors on Saturday get the most from their time with us.
Gates open 2-6pm on Saturday 15th June. Adult £4, children 50p (all proceeds going to the NGS charity).
Tea and delicious homemade Cake will be available on the terrace with all the proceeds going to the NGS charity.
Home grown plants will be available for sale for £1.30 (£1 from each plant will go to the NGS charity).
5 acres of garden to explore set in mature Sussex parkland only 2.5 miles from Chichester City Centre.
Parking is free and access is all over level ground.
Well behaved dogs on leads please.
A friendly welcome awaits you.
Lots still to do but the best bits we can claim no credit for, it’s just nature putting on a show. Here’s a taster…
Having taken two years out of the National Garden Scheme’s Yellow Book we are opening again in 2013.
Saturday 15th June 2013 we will open between 2 and 6pm.
All are welcome and once again the finest Sussex homemade cakes and tea will be on offer.
All proceeds will go to the NGS
Plenty of easy and free parking with a warm welcome
A working walled kitchen garden to explore.
Plenty of space for all the family.
Probably the best homemade teas anywhere with ALL proceeds going to charity.
Sennicotts gardens will not be opening under the N.G.S. scheme in 2011.
Due to disruptive work taking place in and around the garden we will take a break and plan to open again in 2012.
It wasn’t the warmest day of the year but a hardy 284 tickets were sold to our adult guests at the gate and together we raised £1,736 with all proceeds from the gate and the teas going to the NGS charity.
A big thank you to everyone who joined us and we look forward to seeing you again next year.
A big thank you too, to our team of volunteers who helped on the day and were hard at work in the build up baking our delicious cakes.
You can’t control who comes to a garden opening!
However, members of the Southern Kit Car Club brought an added attraction to this year’s opening…
Even if you don’t know anything about flowers or gardens we think you should still come along to our garden opening today.
Why? Simply because our homemade cakes are probably the best you will ever taste and 100% of the proceeds go to charity.
