Do you love your Garden?

Jan 4, 2019 | Bits & Bobs

Do you value it as much as we do?

Would you be willing to share it?

In aid of health charities?

The National Garden Scheme, West Sussex is searching for local gardens in your town or village, to be shared for just a few hours in 2020 with fellow garden lovers, in aid of nursing, cancer and health charities.

If you prefer to open jointly with friends or neighbours, we can help coordinate community group openings.

We will support you, provide help, offer advice, and ensure “your” garden open day is successful.

Please help us hang our “Garden Open Today” sign on your garden gate by contacting:

Mrs Patty Christie, NGS County Organiser, West Sussex for an informal chat on 01730 813323 or


The charity raised more than £4 million nationally in 2017 for various health charities including £500,000 to Macmillan Cancer Support, £500,000 to Hospice UK and £150,000 to Parkinson’s UK. In order to continue to raise these vast sums, we must continue to attract new gardens to the scheme and replace any gardens whose owners are no longer able to welcome visitors.
