SUCCESSFUL EVENTS  2017:

BONFIRE PARTY & FIREWORKS NIGHT (4th November): Our bonfire night was well attended this year and a great success as always. The weather was dry and mild, but what really made the night so very special was the fantastic fireworks display, courtesy of Luke Richdale to whom we are greatly endebted, his generosity and fabulous masterful display was extraordinary this year again. The compliments came flowing in from the residents attending, the people watching from their houses, the people in the streets and I was told that quite a gathering of people were watching and applauding in Bolton Gardens on the street. "Stupendous display", "fabulous", "wonderful", "amazing" and much more superlatives were used, too many to list! I heard the food was excellent, the wine was flowing, the mulled wine was superb and the children had a grand time too. Thank you all for joining us on the night. Our thanks go as well to our young helpers on the day, Felix and Freja Richdale, his friend too and Romane Gouilliard, without forgetting our committee for their time and hard work.

GLEDHOW GARDENS SUMMER PARTY:  took place on 11th June 2017. The weather was good and all enjoyed the day. Our grateful thanks to Toby Brown and the TLC Tream for sponsoring our party and quenching our thirst on their lovely Proseco.

OPEN GARDEN SQUARES WEEKEND (OGSW): Our garden was open again on 17th and 18th June. The sun shone throughout the weekend it was a great success.

952 visitors came to Gledhow Gardens, an increase of 46 people on last year. All were delighted by our garden. Some visitors like us so much, they come back every year to enjoy our beautiful garden. We have had wonderful compliments, of note was the "Fernery" created this year that enchanted so many of our visitors. This was a successful occasion, a long list of compliments has been typed, alas too long to include here.

This year, like some gardens around us, we collected donations for the Grenfell Tower Fire disaster. £302.96 will go toward the charity dealing with the relief funds created. In our endeavour, we have been helped on Sunday by 3 young residents offering drinks to visitors, they donated all the proceeds to our fund. A big thank you to Estella, Manon and Camille for their help.
