The HCS Committee members and the Gazebo Garden volunteers will be manning the Gazebo Garden stand in Waitrose from around 10:15 onward today, as part of the Waitrose Community Week.
Do stop by for a quick chat – we’d be delighted to see you!
Together with Anna Glanville-Hearson, our hard working secretary and Gazebo Garden Coordinator, the local Havant nature-friendly garden specialist, Martin Hampton, recently led an evening guided walk for 14 members of the Denmead Belles WI group.
We went to the Meadow and 3-Pond Copse at Lower Grove Road and then on to the Gazebo Garden where the visitors were all very interested in both the Gazebo and the garden, and especially in the new wildlife-friendly elements that we have recently introduced.
A big vote of thanks to Waitrose and Partners for their generosity to the local community!
To all of you HCS members, friends, relatives or just casual shoppers with an interest in our ‘Secret Garden’, you’ve managed to raise a terrific total of £480 on the Community Matters – ‘green token’ – Scheme at Waitrose in Havant.
This gives a welcome boost to the funds available for the maintenance of the Gazebo structure and the planting.
With thanks to you all
from the HCS Committee and the Gazebo Garden maintenance volunteers.
Do please stop by the Gazebo Garden and see the wonderful Spring colours. Then spare a thought for those lovely volunteers and next time you’re in Waitrose, drop your green tokens in the Gazebo Garden slot!
Every year, Havant and District Horticultural Society puts on a Summer Show and this year we are delighted that the Gazebo Garden has been added to the locations.
The main event will be held in St Faith’s Church Hall in The Pallant, with additional displays at the Gazebo Garden, activity at both locations starting at 10:30 am and continuing until 3:30 pm.
The Gazebo Room will be open during these hours an it will be a fine opportunity to see the inside of this recently restored local landmark. The Gazebo Garden can be accessed through the Pallant public car park.
