Record Attendances at Teddington in Flower 2018!

Record Attendances at Teddington in Flower 2018!

To celebrate Teddington in Flower 2018, hundreds of people visited the nine gardens on show across the town last weekend. They were well rewarded with a glorious display of expertise, ingenuity, passion, attention to detail – and, of course, tender loving care, that essential ingredient that came in bucket loads.

As well as blossoms and blooms galore, the day also delivered cakes, lemonade, cream teas, hand bell ringing, fishing for tiddlers, plant sales and visits from the Mayor and Mayoress of Richmond, Councillor and Mrs Ben Khosa.

The weather sang for us – plenty of sunshine with the lightest of breezes. Perfect for the gardens, perfect for the visitors.

First indications are that we raised more than £2,000 for charity – this year, the Landmark Arts Centre and the Friends of Bushy & Home Parks, both of whom will use the proceeds to improve their garden areas. We’re also delighted to welcome scores of new members who signed up on the day; in one garden alone, in Fairfax Road, some 15 people joined the Society!

Our grateful thanks to Siân Morgan, who again so expertly organised the event; to all the volunteers who staffed the gates at each garden, and to Belinda Rozalla, who organised them so seamlessly. Also to the gardeners themselves, and to everyone who visited – not least the Mayor and Mayoress, who said afterwards how enormously they had enjoyed the afternoon.
