2019 SUCCESSFUL EVENTS:

TREE SURGERY TOOK PLACE.  Sadly this year we have lost our beloved ancient Cherry tree, 1 Laburnum in the children area, 1 Cherry tree facing the single gete entrance and a lovely Cherry tree on the apron in front of No. 14 and 15 Gledhow Gardens. We shall have to replace these trees fairly soon.

Could we take this opportunity to remind you that tree climbing is not allowed but equally jumping up to catch branches however tempting it maybe. Sadly one major branch was broken in that manner in the last few days of May 2019.

BRIGHTER KENSINGTON GARDEN SQUARES JUDGES:

Two judges visited our garden on 8th of June in the morning.

OPEN GARDEN SQUARES WEEKEND (OGSW) Saturday 8th June 2019, between 10am to 5 pm we welcomed 388 visitors with 6 children this year. The number of visitors was down on last year because we only opened on the Saturday and not the full weekend.

As always the visitors were very complimentary about our garden. What was really nice was welcoming people who liked our garden so much, they made an effort to come back either every year or every second or third year. 

These returning visitors included some from United States, Australia, New Zealand and garden lovers from United Kingdom. 

To avoid disappointment to visitors we shall open on Sunday next year as local gardens belonging to the scheme were only doing the Sunday during the weekend.

2017-2018 SUCCESSFUL EVENTS:

BONFIRE PARTY & FIREWORKS NIGHT (4th November 2017): 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:  Our Jazz Party took place on 3rd June last year. 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. The children had a great time and so did we all.

OPEN GARDEN SQUARES WEEKEND (OGSW): Our garden was open again on 9th and 10th June. The sun shone throughout the weekend it was a great success.

We were slightly down on our last year 952 visitors due to many gardens around us only opening on Sunday and probably attending Trooping of the Colour. However, it picked up on Sunday and  789 adults and 47 children came to Gledhow Gardens. All were delighted by our garden. Some visitors like us so much, they come back to us several times to enjoy our beautiful garden. We have had wonderful compliments, of note was the "Fernery" created last year that enchanted so many of our visitors. Many saying it was their favourite garden. This was a successful occasion, a long list of compliments has been typed again, alas too long to include here.
