Households in the picturesque village of Amberley are busily tending their gardens in preparation for the biennial Gardens Open event on Sunday June 8, which will raise funds for Horsham based children’s charity Action Medical Research.

This community event has been running for 26 years and will see 22 beautiful gardens open to the public as well as the ever-popular plant stall, arts and crafts stall, tombola, ploughman’s lunch and village cream teas.

Following the huge success of the 28 local artists and craftsmen and women – both professional and amateur – who exhibited at Creative Amberley, this year few of them have decided to exhibit their work again at the Gardens Open.

Gardens will be open to the public from noon to 6pm. Tickets cost £6 (children under 12 FOC) and will be available from The Square, junction Church Street and Church Street, junction Hog Lane. Parking is free and the organisers ask for no dogs please.
