Burford House & Gardens – St. Mary’s Church Fete
Sunday, July 19, 2015 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
St. Mary’s Church traditional summer fete will be held in the gardens from 2-5pm. Traditional ice-creams and strawberry teas will be being served in the gardens throughout the fete. There will also be free guided tours of the gardens from our group of dedicated volunteers The Burford House Garden Angels.
The dedicated group of garden volunteers are helping to restore the beautiful gardens at Burford House, near Tenbury Wells in Worcestershire, to their former glory!
The gardens were once home to one of the best collections of clematis in the country, the ‘National Clematis Collection’, until a period of neglect led to its decline. From 2013, an army of volunteers, aptly named ‘Burford House Garden Angels’, have been working hard to restore the 4 acre gardens situated on the banks of the River Teme.
The volunteers meet fortnightly, usually on a Sunday, and undertake all sorts of garden maintenance jobs. The team are thanked for their efforts with refreshments and trips to events such as RHS Chelsea. If you’re interested in becoming a volunteer to help with this rewarding project, please contact Paul Benson on 01584 810777
