After 2 years without an Open Gardens event, we are excited to be returning.  This is one of our key fundraising events of the year.  All proceeds go towards providing enriched, fulfilled and happy lives to adults with learning disabilities supported by The Grange (2016) Ltd.

In a change to previous years, we are limiting the admissions.  30 tickets will be available within each designated time slot, this is a measure to ensure the safety of the people we support, our staff, volunteers and visitors.  We will only be able to allow admission to people who have purchased tickets in advance.

The Grange garden was carefully cultivated by  Collingwood Ingram, nicknamed Cherry Ingram due to his dedication to ornamental Cherry trees.

Cherry Ingram was responsible for reintroducing the great white flowering Cherry tree, ‘Taihaku’ back to Japan, where it had previously died out.

The tree he used for this still stands proudly in the garden today along with a number of other fascinating trees and plants.  Including his original hybrid cherry tree ‘Kursar’.
