July 10th -13th Celebration 600/200 at St Edmund's Church 

 The Garden took part by planting a mini-Medieval garden just below the poly-tunnels. This is planted with fruit, flowers and vegetables such as might have been grown by a 15th Century villein, living in the town. We hope there were fewer slugs and snails about in those days!

June 14/15th - Kingsbridge Open Gardens - jointly with St Luke's Hospice. This was a really successful event, raising a total of £2500 for both charities. 29 gardens round Kingsbridge were open, and the sun shone solidly for two days, making it a wonderful walkabout - although some did travel by car. People came from far and wide and everyone was delighted with gardens, teas and extra entertainments!
