Todwick Gardens/Historic Trail

Sunday, 30th July 2006
11.00 - 16.00

Something different - Todwick's history goes back a long way, so learn something about it on this day. There will be an exhibition of memorabilia and photos by Philip Robbins in the Village Hall. This is the last event before the Village Hall is closed for mega refurbishment and there will be also an exhibition of the Village Hall new plans.

The Trail will include older buildings etc, e.g. the 1068 church which will have some special flower displays for this occasion, see Robin Hood's Trysting Tree, Todwick Moat and the ancient wall, and some of the attractive private gardens and views in our lovely village that will be open to visitors.

A number of people have already offered to show their gardens. It would be good to have more even if you just want people to stand and appreciate your front garden without wandering over your property then that would equally good. A trail map is being produced for the day showing all the stopping points, including refreshment stops at the new Church Hall and also the Village Hall.

A programme of extensive publicity is continuing, through the Informer, Todwick News, Todwick web site, local press, posters, flyers and by word of mouth... so we are hoping for a good turnout. Please book the dates in your Diary!

Contact Sheila Pantry Tel 01909 771024 or email: if you want to be on the list of gardens open for viewing.

All we need for both days is lovely warm sunshine and for you to come and support these free events!!!!
