Personal tools

Craft activities for the family from NGS

The Walled Garden is proud to open its doors once a year in conjunction with NGS (National Garden Scheme) Last year the Walled Garden was stunning and visitors had a fantastic time.  All proceeds from the day went towards the worthy causes supported by NGS.

NGS: 'Thanks to the generosity of garden owners, volunteers and visitors we have donated a total of £58 million to nursing and health charities and made an annual donation of £3 million in 2019. Our core beneficiaries include Macmillan Cancer Support, Marie Curie, Hospice UK and The Queen’s Nursing Institute.

The National Garden Scheme doesn’t just open beautiful gardens for charity – we are passionate about the physical and mental health benefits of gardens too. We also support charities doing amazing work in gardens and health and grant bursaries to help community gardening projects.'

Although participating organisations are closed at this time younger gardeners are encouraged to keep up their interest with crafts and activity ideas at:
