This annual community fundraising event offers a self guided tour of gardens within the parish of Rixton-with-Glazebrook and includes:
- 10 gardens open to the public
- A themed Scarecrow Trail
- An exhibition of paintings by local artists from Rachelle Cleary’s Art Class held at the Community Hall, Hollins Green
- Sale of locally grown plants
- Refreshments available throughout the day
The year’s event is on Saturday 9th June 2018 (see pdf below). Event open to all (children to be accompanied by an adult). Sorry no dogs allowed.
The programme admits visitors to all 10 gardens and other events and includes a map giving the location and a brief description of each garden and other events taking place on the day. Parking and toilets are available on route and are identified on the programme.
The event usually takes place the first weekend in June with programmes on sale a couple of weeks beforehand from different facilities around the parish – The Village Shop, Black Swan and Red Lion in Hollins Green, Glazebrook Post Office and Hamilton Davies Trust who sponsor the publication of the programme. Proceeds from the sale of programmes go to support Rixton-with-Glazebrook’s Parish Plan projects.
The Garden Safari has enjoyed 7 years of success – see the picture gallery for images of previous events, including the gardens, scarecrows and art exhibits.
