Secluded Gardens open in Sidmouth
MONEY raised from a berries and music afternoon will be used to create a secluded garden in memory of Anne Bagwell, a stalwart member of Sidmouth in Bloom. Hopefully it will be in Blackmore Gardens.
MONEY raised from a berries and music afternoon will be used to create a secluded garden in memory of Anne Bagwell, a stalwart member of Sidmouth in Bloom.
"Hopefully it will be in Blackmore Gardens. We have talked with East Devon District Council and they have agreed for us to do this," said Bloom president Joy Seward.
She said members had spoken to Oliver Bagwell and sons Peter and Martin about the project, which it is hoped will be finished this autumn.
Meanwhile this year's Sidmouth's Secluded Garden week, which Anne organised for some years before her death, began yesterday (Thursday) and ends on Tuesday, July 14.
