On Sunday 17th June 2018
Our pretty and peaceful stream-crossed Test Valley village, with an abundance of thatched houses, opened gardens hidden behind walls and fences. We were very privileged to have eight gardens ranging from small modern to larger landscaped, plus the allotments which proved to be hugely popular.
For the day to be simply called King’s Somborne “Open Gardens” did not do it justice, as it provided so much more.
We managed to raise £3,700 (despite the unseasonal weather) which will be shared between Cancer Research UK, St.Peter & St.Paul’s Church and the Village Hall. This would not have been possible without all the hard working people involved. We can't thank you all enough!
The next Open Gardens
We're hoping to open our gardens again in two years time (2020).
If you would like to be involved in any way, or have any suggestions/ideas that will make this event even more successful, please do get in touch.

Health & Safety Notice
Please note that the only dogs allowed in gardens are official guide dogs for the blind.
These are private gardens and while every effort has been made to make sure they are safe we expect every visitor to take care on paths and walkways to ensure their own safety.
Unfortunately we cannot say for sure that any garden is suitable for a wheelchair or large walking aids but some are easier than others. Please ask if you need advice.
Children should be supervised at all times and remain the full responsibility of parents and carers.
Please take care while walking from one garden to another when crossing roads, especially near the sharp bend on the Romsey Road.
Look after your own valuables. The open garden organisers cannot be responsible for any losses.
The shuttle bus services will drop off and pick up at every garden so if possible please leave your car at the recreation grounds and enjoy your visit!
