‘s charity fund-raising open day for the National Garden Scheme (NGS) on Saturday 24 July was a huge success raising a total of £784.59 to be shared amongst the range of nursing and health charities supported by NGS.
Throughout the day people were able to explore our 45-acre estate with highlights including the Japanese garden, community allotments, lakeside butterfly beds, fruit orchards, Mediterranean garden, courtyard and pond, and a range of woodland walks.
Informal tours of the grounds with members of the Estates Team were running throughout the day and an exhibition of works by the Middleton Hall Retirement Village Photography group and paintings, ceramics and craftworks by other creative residents was also on display for visitors.
Suzanne Graham, Middleton Hall Retirement Village’s Managing Director, said: “The day was a great success and we were delighted to be helping to raise much-needed funds for the NGS charities. Our 2020 event had to be cancelled due to the pandemic so being able to let people enjoy our estate has been extra special this year.
“Thanks to the tireless work of our Estates Team, the estate looked wonderful and the enthusiastic team of volunteers, including residents who live here, colleagues and National Garden Scheme representatives, all made visitors feel very welcome.”
