Record amount raised

I thought you would like to know that in spite of a certain football match taking place on the Sunday of Alvechurch Open Gardens, we managed to raise a record £5,115. Well done to everyone who opened their garden and especially Celia and her team for providing refreshments.

I’m hoping to recruit a new organiser for 2020 so if any readers would like to volunteer, or display their gardens, please email me on
