Honley’s hidden gems, normally shared only with family and friends, are set to be unveiled to the public at Honley’s Open Gardens event.
Ordinarily tucked away behind hedges, walls or fences, green fingered gardening enthusiasts will open their gates to the public on Saturday, June 10 and Sunday, June 11, from 10am until 4pm. Borders and hedges are busily being tidied in order to delight our senses for the two-day event. Beautiful yet different, from colourful floral blooms to carefully crafted hedges, twelve lovingly created gardens promise to provide a spectacular display.
The event is being held to help raise funds for the community group Friends of Honley. Wristband entry is £8 with 10% of all ticket sales being donated to green causes such as tree and hedge planting and community gardens within the village.
Six of the twelve gardens are within walking distance of Honley village centre. Honley Scouts and Honley’s South Pennine Community Transport are providing four courtesy buses (running every twenty minutes) to gardens outside of the village centre in order to help alleviate traffic and reduce Holme Valley carbon emissions.
Honley Village Library will host nature themed craft activities including pebble painting. There will be a free children’s nature trail around the village and in open green spaces. Entry forms can be collected from the library or from Zebra Jewellery and Gift shop in the village from the week before. Music will be played near to the library and in some of the gardens that are open to the public.
(Saturday) 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
