Open Gardens 2021

The Shere Open Gardens committee met in early February to discuss how this year’s event might run, and decided that, with the constantly changing situation, it was too early to make any firm plans. 

Please check back at the beginning of April when an update will be posted.  

In the meantime, we invite you to take a look at our Virtual Tour and dream about the summer to come!

Shere’s Open Gardens

In a normal year we would have donated in excess of £10,000 to about 15 important village causes including the Infant School, Toddlers Group, Scouts and Guides, local sports clubs, local health initiatives, Shere Museum, Veterans and the all-important Over 65s Christmas Party.  Many of these causes rely heavily on the funds raised by Shere Open Gardens and so we are offering those who visit Virtual Shere Open Gardens a chance to help by donating via our JustGiving page.

Shere Open Gardens committee has kept a limited amount of money aside each year as a ‘rainy day’ fund.  Although it was not the weather that ruined the event this year, we will be looking carefully at this pool of money, together with funds raised via JustGiving and will be in touch with the beneficiary causes later in the summer to discuss the donations that can be made.
