On Sunday 22nd May, Richmond Hill Open Gardens organised a public viewing event of 12 stunning private gardens set on the slopes of picturesque Richmond Hill.

Over a thousand visitors admired and were inspired by these gardens and also indulged in the sweet treats on offer in St Matthias Church. We were blessed with a beautifully sunny day and the event was a huge success.

We would like to send a heartfelt thank you to the organisers of Richmond Hill Open Gardens who have raised and donated an astonishing £8500 to The Holly Lodge Centre. What an incredible gift which will make a huge difference to the running of our centre.

We would also like to thank our volunteers who helped on the day: whether it was in the gardens, serving refreshments or baking cakes! Your kindness is hugely appreciated.
