Tysoe Open Gardens

4th & 5th June 2016, 2:00 - 6:00pm

For the very first time a group of 10 gardens in Upper and Middle Tysoe are opening in aid of the National Gardens Scheme.  The NGS is a charity which raises money through organising the opening of mainly private gardens for its beneficial charities such as Macmillan Cancer Support, Marie Curie, Help the Hospices (of which Shipston Home Nursing is a beneficiary) and other caring charities.  The NGS has donated more money to Macmillan’s and Marie Curie than any other organisation and in 2015 alone gave away £2,700,000 to all of its beneficiaries.  An incredible 80p in every pound received from visitors to our gardens goes directly to the charities we support.  There are over 3,300 gardens that open in England and Wales, either individually or in a group such as Tysoe. The NGS is run almost entirely by volunteers who give up their time and hard work, either in the garden or administratively, for the pleasure of letting other people enjoy their gardens and raise money for those charities so desperately needing our help.

Please come and support us on these two NGS Festival days.  Entry £5 per person, children under 16 free.  There will be delicious homemade teas and plants for sale in the village hall. 

Other local openings for the NGS are: 

Sunday 16th June: Honington, Whichford & Ascott,     Warmington

Sunday 26th June: Ilmington, Lighthorne

Sunday 3rd July: Over 90 allotments in Wellesbourne,

Booklets showing all Warwickshire NGS openings are available in local village shops and libraries or on the website www.ngs.org.uk.

This site is maintained by villagers of Oxhill for the benefit of the community and those interested in the history, news and activities that make the village such a pleasant place to live.
