Sunday May 21st from 11 am – date for your diary!
Our annual plant sale takes place on the back lawn at Charlton House on Sunday May 21st and this year it promises to be our biggest (and best?) yet. We are being joined by Blackheath & Greenwich WI as usual, with their scrumptious cakes and savouries. The following groups will be there, and perhaps a few more!
The Charlton Society, Charlton Community Gardens, Charlton Toy Library, Blackheath Flower Arranging Club, Friends of Charlton Park, Friends of Greenwich Park, St George’s Garrison Church Woolwich, Charlton Central Residents Association and Neighbourhood Watch, Charlton Neighbourhood Forum, Repurpose Silvertown Tunnel and Charlton House Beekeepers
On top of this, stalls from the Producers Market will be there, with face painting and hot food, Frilly’s cafe will be open and you can view the brand new “Ottoman Journeys” exhibition in Charlton House. https://www.greenwichheritage.org/events/ottoman-journeys-life-and-afterlife-in-greenwich/
St Luke’s Church will be open, you can climb the tower to see the panoramic views and the wonderful Millenium tapestry will be on display too. You can download the poster here, please share it widely.
Our Head Gardener will be giving a guided tour of the walled gardens at 1pm, and there will be a “Bugs in the Beds” trail in the Old Pond Garden for the kids (no prizes, just for fun).
Our plants are all grown and generously donated by our own members and the funds raised go to Greenwich & Bexley Community Hospice, our speaker programme and the walled gardens revival. We really hope you can come along and support us and have some fun!
To our members: we are all ready for your plants whenever you drop them off at the gardens – here is evidence that Casper the cat is fully involved in getting the shelving ready!
