From our reporter....
On the 28th May, as part of Epping Open Gardens, we opened our garden and served coffee and cake.
We had a really good turnout especially as the bike ride through the high street was happening at the same time, with over a hundred people coming through our doors and raising £160 for St Clare Hospice and Memory Train, a charity giving people with dementia a trip on the Epping Ongar Railway.
We have been creating an eco-garden and, on this day, particularly with the help of Maisie and Nathan, we built a magnificent 'bug hotel'.
Many of our visitors really liked our bug hotel and the meadow area and it contrasted well with the other gardens on show, one of which had a life-sized terracotta warrior!
Thanks to all who helped and baked the tasty array of cakes we had and Cynthia who created a lovely flower display for the sanctuary. (Click on the pictures to see them fully).
