Open Gardens


On Sunday 11 June 2017 Sway will once again be holding its biennial Open Gardens Event and Craft Fair from 11.00am to 5.00pm.

20 or more Sway villagers will be opening their beautiful gardens, as well as community spaces such as the grounds of St Luke’s Church and The Manor at Sway.

There will be our fabulous plant stall, the best of raffles and those delicious refreshments we have come to expect at The Sway Gardening Club events to keep you going during the day. This year we shall also be holding a small Craft Fair with selected exhibitors from the New Forest area. We have even made it easy for you to get around to see as many gardens as possible with our very own complimentary hop-on/hop-off bus.

New for 2017 will be some electric bikes, available free of charge, for you to try out.

Tickets will be available at £6.50 per person in advance, or £7.50 on the day. Proceeds from the Open Gardens will once again go to the Oakhaven Hospice which is celebrating it’s 25th year, as well as local groups, societies and other beneficiaries.

Please book this date in your diary to make sure you do not miss this fantastic event. Latest details will follow on this site and in the Sway News.
