Much Hadham and Little Hadham residents to show off horticultural skills with open gardens events on successive Sundays in June

Green-fingered residents of the Hadhams will show off their skills this month with two open garden events.

The Friends of Much Hadham Church have organised an event in their parish on Sunday June 25, from noon to 5pm.

One of the organisers, Barbara Doherty, said: “Thirteen very special gardens will be open, large and small, all within easy walking distance of the High Street.

“Our garden hosts have been busy working on their shrubs, flowers and lawns for months.

“From a large garden at the Old Rectory to a new small, contemporary garden, there is something for all to enjoy.”

Visitors should register at the village hall. Admission is £5 for adults and free for children.

The hall will feature a selection of artisan stalls, a raffle and light refreshments and teas served all day.

Barbara said: “All proceeds from the day will help towards the upkeep of our 800-year-old parish church [St Andrew’s].”

A week earlier, on Sunday June 18, Little Hadham householders will be welcoming visitors from 10.30am to 4pm.

The event has been organised by the village hall committee as part of a long-term fundraising project to refurbish the community building.

The hosts include Indie Nature Notes correspondent Jono Forgham and a parish bee expert.

There will also be a plant sale and refreshments served in the village hall.
