Fourteen gardens in the village of Woodgreen in The New Forest are opening to the public on 16th June, from 10 am to 5 pm, in aid of The Village Halls of Hale and Woodgreen, The Hants and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance and the Colostomy Association. Tickets cost £6 ( children under 14 free), and are available at any of the gardens on the trail. Gardens will be signposted and your ticket is also your map.
Woodgreen is in the New Forest just off the A338 between Salisbury and Ringwood. Key in SP6 2AJ into your satnav and you will find the village hall in the village centre. The Hall is where you can find refreshments and loos etc. and most important is the home of the famous wall murals , painted in the early 1930s and depicting village life and the actual villagers of the day.The BBC once made a TV programme about them and they are worth the visit in themselves. There is also the local hostelry, The Horse and Groom nearby and wild ponies, deer and cattle mingle with the locals. Oh yes, and the gardens are good too.
