Mr and Mrs Harrold opened their lovely gardens to the public as part of the National Gardens Scheme on 23rd April. In spite of a wet and grey start which the Marathon Runners had to endure, at 2pm the rain had stopped and visitors started to appear up the drive. Their house Little Harwood has a garden of two acres with both formal and informal areas. There is a terraced garden which includes a water garden, a rock garden, Herbaceous border, and herb garden.  In addition there are large specimen trees, also clipped yew and hawthorn hedges.




In spite of the weather the garden was popular and people came to enjoy this lovely spring garden along with a home made tea. 



There were 231 adult visitors, plus children and dogs, which (including donations) raised 694.41 for the National Gardens Scheme. Plant sales in aid of Compassion in World Farming raised 287.25 and Teas raised 330.10 in aid of Holy Trinity Church Cookham Parish Centre Refurbishment Fund. Our thanks to Tom and Brenda Copas for allowing parking at Mount Farm.
