Floristry

Beth Bruce-Gardner runs Honeymoon Fern, which supplies sustainable flowers for weddings, events and bouquets from her workshop in Fairford. She will be at Saltway House, foraging flowers and foliage from the garden and demonstrating how to arrange them.

 

Music

We are delighted to welcome back The Macaroons, who play a mixture of jazz, Latin, blues and soul which will take you from the French Quarter in New Orleans to the streets of Montmartre. They are Alex Stanton (trumpet, flugelhorn, vocals), Nigel Summerley (drums, harmonica, vocals), Mike Mangroo (guitar, vocals) and Chris Stanton (bass guitar) and they will be performing in the garden at Church House.

 

Hedgelaying

Phil Hart has 25 years experience lecturing in agriculture and countryside at Plumpton College, East Sussex. He is chairman of the South of England hedgelaying society and has judged competitions at Highgrove. He will be showing how to lay a hedge and explaining the benefits of a traditional hedgerow at Pudding Hill Barn.

 

Fly casting

At Pudding Hill Barn you can walk down to the River Coln, along mown paths through a wildflower meadow, or you can view the river from the Trout Hut if you are not feeling energetic. Keen fisherman Marcus Child will be running a fly casting competition on the Coln.

 

Plants

Bibury Gardening Club will be selling plants and other produce in aid of the village hall at Awkward Hill Cottage, Hawkers Hill.

 

Tea and cakes

We are very proud of our local bakers. They will be selling tea and cake, and offering visitors a very warm welcome, in the village hall.

 

We would like to thank all our garden owners for their support. Thanks also go to Mr and Mrs Marc Newson, and their estate manager Sophie Russell Marsh, for the use of their field for parking; to Mrs Wendy Challinor for designing the Open Gardens passports; to the Village Life committee for printing the passports and to our vicar, the Revd Tim Hastie-Smith, for the use of the St Mary’s Church.
