We're excited to announce that Abbey Gardens is taking part in Open Garden Squares Weekend, a London-wide event on 12 and 13 June, we are open 10 - 5 both days. We will be the first garden to open in Newham! Visit www.opensquares.org for more information.
As part of this weekend the Friends of Abbey Gardens will be holding a Summer Fair on the Saturday afternoon (12 June from midday to 4pm) and hosting a giant picnic. There won't be so much produce to eat from the garden yet, so we would like to ask everyone to bring their own picnic and hopefully we will enjoy a nice early summer day in the garden. There will be a plant sale, a photography exhibition by the Friends of Abbey Gardens, garden tours by Karen, Hamish & I, children's games and, of course, the ever popular tea and cake stall.
