Abbey Gardens took part in Open Garden Squares Weekend, a London-wide event on 12 and 13 June, we were open 10 - 5 both days. Visit www.opensquares.org for more information.
As part of the Open Garden Squares Weekend the Friends of Abbey Gardens held a Summer Fair on the Saturday afternoon (12 June from midday to 4pm) and we had an informal picnic. There wasn't so much produce to eat yet from the garden (unless you liked radishes!) so we asked everyone to bring their own picnic and enjoyed a nice early summer day in the garden. There were also plant sales, a photography exhibition by the Friends of Abbey Gardens, garden tours, a creative corner, children's games and, of course, the ever popular tea and cake stall.
For more details of other participating sites visit the Open Garden Squares website - you'll find we were the first in Newham!
