Thanks for attending Prinsted open houses

MAY I, through your columns, thank all those people who turned out on a very cold and windy day to attend the open garden event at The Old House, Prinsted, on May 20.

Thankfully, it did not rain as forecast and more than 260 visitors enjoyed the garden and a cream tea in relative comfort with the plant stall taking record sales.

We raised over £3,000 for St. Wilfrid’s Hospice and I would like to thank particularly members of Southbourne Support Group for cheerfully working so hard to make such a wonderful result possible.
