Ravensford Farm – Open Garden

13226 (01)Dear friends,

At risk of being accused of promoting our own interests, please may I remind you that our garden will be open in aid of the National Gardens Scheme this Sunday afternoon (14th June) from 2.00 to 5.00pm. Entry costs £4.00, children come in free.  We shall be serving homemade cakes for tea, and there will be Northumbrian pipe music in the background.  There will also be plants for sale. Last year we made nearly £2,000 for the ten charities the scheme supports, which include Marie Curie, Macmillan, Hospices UK and the Carers Trust – so we’d love to try and match that again.

Hoping to see you,

Caroline and Jonathan
