Desford Open Gardens 2019 Save the Date!

The weekend of the 22nd and 23rd June will see Desford welcoming visitors to a variety of gardens and special events.  Each day there will be stalls, displays, refreshments, a puppet workshop and the opportunity for guided walks to the Barns Charity Fields (not usually open to the public).  Live bands will perform on Sunday afternoon on the Church Green.
Desford Community Action Group launched the Open Gardens weekend in 2007 and it has gone from strength to strength in funding local environmental projects.  Current fund raising supports the ongoing transformation of the former Strict Baptist Cemetery into a peaceful community garden and replacing stiles with "kissing gates" on the public footpath between Desford and Lindridge.  Some individual gardeners will also be raising funds for their chosen charities.
Come and discover more of our lively community.  Enjoy not just the open gardens but also the vibrant displays provided by Desford in Bloom who will be representing the East Midlands in the Britain in Bloom competition this year.
