Enderby Open Gardens

On Saturday 2nd July, the Enderby Parish Council is organising our first Open Garden event for the village.

There will be several varied and interesting gardens for you to potter around between 1 and 5 p.m. and you will be able to visit ‘A Place to Grow’ and the Enderby Allotments to get some inspiration for your veg plot. Refreshments will be available to purchase in one of the gardens.

Hopefully it will be a sunny day and everyone will enjoy a leisurely stroll around the village and a glimpse into other people’s gardens.

Entrance will be via a map of the gardens which you will be able to purchase on the day at the Adult Learning Centre at a cost of £3 per person, accompanied under 16’s free. There will also be parking available here. Unfortunately we won’t be able to accommodate dogs in the gardens.

100% of the proceeds will go to the Enderby Library and The King George V Playing Fields Trust to be used for the development of the woodland and wild flower area on the park. You may have noticed already that a section of the park has been left uncut in order to re-wild. The Trustees have also agreed an action plan, working alongside the Leicestershire County Council Environmental Team and our Enderby Parish Tree Warden, to establish a wildlife area at the far corner of the park in the already existing area of woodland. This is an exciting project, providing a space for all parishioners to enjoy. The funds will initially be used to pay for the clearance of some invasive plants and to create pathways in the woodland to allow easy access for all. Future plans include installing bird and bat boxes and information signs as well as the ongoing maintenance of the site.

We look forward to welcoming you on the day.
