Green fingered gardeners get a cash boost

Date: Wednesday 17 June 2015

NY - Skelton Gardens

We’ve provided a £300 cash boost to the Skelton Villages Civic Pride to help support its first ever open garden event.

The event, which will see members of the local community open their private gardens and welcome friends and neighbours to look around their blossoming roses and lush lawns, will take place on Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th June.

Locals are invited to come along and share handy hints and tips with fellow amateur gardening enthusiasts, ask any burning questions they might have about improving their own gardens and purchase plants along the way. Refreshments will also be provided, in keeping with the traditional English garden party theme.

Daphne Hurworth, co-organiser of the Skelton Villages Civic Pride Open Gardens, comments: “We’re expecting to attract anything between 300 to 1,500 people over the course of the weekend and hope to make it an annual event, as we believe it’s a fantastic way to help promote Skelton’s villages.

“I’m a passionate gardener myself, and I know quite a lot of other people in the region are too, so cannot wait to chat to them about the thing I love doing most – and meet others who share the same passion.”

Skelton Villages Civic Pride Open Gardens will take place in Skelton-in-Cleveland, just a short distance from our Annandale Park development.

Debbie Whittingham, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey North Yorkshire, explains: “We’re thrilled to be a part of the first ever Skelton Villages Civic Pride Open Gardens, and to be helping to promote the area.

“This is a great community initiative which will not only bring people together but will make the villages look lovely too. We’re very excited to be on board.”

Daphne concludes: “I would like to thank Taylor Wimpey for such generosity, and we hope this marks the start of an ongoing relationship with the company.”

Annandale Park currently features a range of four-bedroom homes.
