Longstock Park Water Garden
We have received some really exciting news!
The Management Committee of the Leckford Estate has granted our request for a Water Garden Open Day on Sunday 1 June, 2014 (note the date for your diary!). Only 12 charities are given Open Days each year so we are really lucky!
The Water Garden within Longstock Park is part of the Leckford Estate – the Waitrose Farm and is part of the John Lewis Partnership.
- Open from 2.00 to 5.00pm
- We will receive the proceeds of the gate on the day
- No dogs except Guide dogs
- There is also a Farm Shop and Nursery, refreshments, etc.
