Pooh and House Gardens in Fittleworth held their last open weekend on September 28 and 29.

Artists Sue Hoffman, Jane Bohane, Jessica Gill. St. Johns Ambulance (Southwick), Sussex Bat Group, Sussex Wildlife Trust and more all featured throughout the Spring (May), Summer (mid August), Autumn (end Sept) for the 2013 season of openings.

We had another unexpected visitor this time - no not the Tortoise - but Horses drawn into the garden.

Pictured is Jill Stacey and her horse with little Kate Boffey in the foreground under separate cover. They are outside the Shepherd’s Hut which is Pooh and his chums holiday hiding place!

Next year will possibly the last of seasonal openings with a focus on early Spring and December for an Xmas special in 2014 for the 10th Anniversary of Pooh House and Gardens - a former disused sand quarry imaginatively created into a challenging and innovative 8 gardens in 1.

There is also a soon to be announced off-site June 2014 jamboree at the Garden Show (Stansted Park) to celebrate with 20 or so stall holders that have displayed and contributed at pooh house garden events over the years in aid of The Chestnut Tree House (only children’s hospice in Sussex).

We are indebted to your paper and your readers for their continual kind and generous support which along with our tireless helpers and kind exhibitors make our events special and ‘learning made fun’ with Pooh and his chums.
