Laskey Farm Opens its garden June to August under the National Garden Scheme

Laskey Farm opens its garden each year under the National Garden Scheme (NGS), we typically have 800 visitors raising up to £12,000 a year 

Now that we have a slight easing of lockdown the NGS has issued guidelines to allow the safe opening of larger gardens 

 We have therefore decided to open the garden every Thursday and Saturday in the June to August period (starting Thursday 11th June) to individuals or households by appointment between 1pm and 5pm each day 

 We have 1.5 acres of mature garden as well as cold and warm water ponds, a treehouse, a variety of fish, turtles and chickens plus we have plants for sale and a kids' treasure hunt 

 We are unable to provide our usual tea and cakes but welcome guests bringing their own refreshments plus a rug to sit on, plus we will put up gazebos if it is not too windy 

 Access is strictly by appointment to allow us to comply with social distancing and to control numbers in the garden 

 We have plenty of car parking but would prefer it if people made their visit part of their daily walk or cycle ride if at all possible 

 We will charge our usual admission price payable in cash : £5 per adult (children under 16 free) NB no change given  

All proceeds to the NGS who are understandably focussing on nursing charities this year 

Please call Howard on 07785-262478 or e mail on howardplatt@lockergroup.com, to book your visit  

thank you for your support
