KENNINGTON OPEN GARDENS 2022
SUNDAY 26 JUNE, 2-6pm

GARDENS LARGE AND SMALL, PLANTS, SECONDHAND GARDEN & WILDLIFE BOOKS, TEAS

Kennington’s green-fingered gardeners will have a varied range of gardens for you to enjoy on what we hope will be a lovely day on which to celebrate summer. Of course, open gardens also means tea and cakes and a great atmosphere in the village.

Help us build a LIBRARY FOR ALL in Mumias West, Kenya

All the money raised will be donated to The Nasio Trust, the Abingdon-based charity which supports a community in rural Western Kenya. The money will be ear-marked for the building of a community library in Mumias County, with the aim of instilling a love of reading in the local children and promoting literacy in the wider community.

Adult tickets cost 5 each, giving you access to all the gardens. Children 14 and under go free. Buy your ticket from 2pm onwards from the stall in St Swithun’s Church grounds (2 The Avenue, OX1 5PN), where you will be given a leaflet with a description of all the gardens, information about refreshments, plant stalls, etc. and a map.
