Do you love your front garden?
Why not share it with others to help lift our spirits and raise funds for our local hospice?
We are asking all involved to support our local
St Peter and St James Hospice

Due to Covid-19 restrictions the 2020 Open Garden Event has been cancelled but Lindfield Open Gardens have teamed up with Lindfield Horticultural Society and Lindfield in Bloom to arrange a Front Garden Festival throughout the summer.
Full details can be downloaded by clicking this link Lindfield Front Garden Festival flyer
In summary we are asking garden owners to join in by July 11th when the best few will be selected for the "Peoples Choice" stage which will run until Sat 12th Sept. A map of the selected gardens will be distributed so everyone in the community can view these lovely gardens and vote online for their favourite - and hopefully donate to the hospice.
The most popular garden in each part of the village and the overall People’s Choice will be announced on Sat 12th September. Winners will receive prizes donated by our sponsors and there will be special prize for the best planter or hanging basket - so even if you only have a window box, hanging basket of planter, you can still join in.
Lindfield Open Gardens 2019 and 2021
In 2019 eighteen gardens across the village welcomed more than 800 visitors at the June event and raised over £9,000 for the hospice.
Carol Hughes, Community Fundraiser at St Peter and St James, wrote a letter of thanks to say " What a stunning overall total for Lindfield Open Gardens, who could have imagined it would raise over £9,000. My heartfelt best wishes to all the gardeners and helpers for the amazing amount of money you have raised."
It is really sad that the event can't run in 2020 but we will be back in 2021. If you would like to join in by opening your garden or can volunteer to help, please contact us to find out more. Here are some photos from earlier years.
