At least eight green-fingered fund raisers will open their gardens this summer in an aim to raise funds for St. Peter and St. James Hospice.

Hurstpierpoint Open Gardens will take place on June 14, from 1pm to 5.30pm.

Last year, the event raised more than £6,000 and the gardeners hope to meet this target again this year.

This year’s open gardens will be around Cuckfield Road and the parish church area so visitors can use the Trinity Road car park.

As with previous years, the community bus will be running a circular hop-on, hop-off shuttle service.

Visitors will also be able to see some plant stalls where people can buy potted plants.

The gardeners have asked residents to help with the event by donating plants and home-made cakes. Call Prue Heron on 01273 835064 or email prueheron@gmail.com. For more visit www.hurstpierpointopengardens.org.uk.
