The St Michael’s Open Garden event which was due to open up village gardens to the public on 30th and 31st May is now taking place online with a collection of videos and photographs featuring 15 of the village’s inspirational gardens.
Event Co-ordinator, Alison Watkins, herself an outpatient at St Michael’s Hospice said, ‘We were all disappointed when we thought that the event would have to be cancelled. But the community’s enthusiasm and technological know-how now means we can share the gardens which are all in tip-top condition with online visitors.’
