Open Gardens Weekend A Great Success!

Thank you to the garden owners, allotment holders, and Howth Sutton Horticultural Society members who helped make the open garden charity weekend (21st and 22nd June) in aid of St. Francis Hospice, Raheny such a success. A total of 4540euro was raised for St. Francis Hospice and 976euro for Value Added in Africa. The gardens were  Conall O’Caoimh’s garden “Ardan”, The Jeffrey’s garden and Howth Allotments.

Here are a few pictures taken in Janet and David Jeffrey’s garden during the Open Garden weekend.  The sun shone non stop for the entire time, so conditions were ideal for our many visitors to relax and enjoy the peaceful surroundings.
