Gardens open for hospice

Wednesday 18th June 2014

THE large cottage garden at The Dairy House in Loose will be open as part of the Heart of Kent Hospice Open Gardens Scheme from 2 to 5pm on June 22.

The suggested donation is £5, and admission is free for children, who must be supervised.

Refreshments and toilets will be available in the church, just a short walk away. There is no wheelchair access and no dogs are allowed. There is no parking at the property, so visitors should park at the top of Old Loose Hill.

Another cottage-style garden that is taking part in the scheme is at 51-53 Sutton Road. This will open from 11am to 4pm on Saturday, June 28, and the suggested donation is £3.50. There is limited parking, or visitors can use the No 12 or 82 bus from Maidstone town centre. No children or dogs will be admitted, but there is wheelchair access. Toilets and refreshments will be available, there will be a plant sale and the owner will be on hand to talk about the plants.
