Queen’s Park gardeners and artists open up their gardens to benefit the community
Biennial event raises funds towards improving the area
Gardeners and artists from Queen’s Park opened up their gardens on Sunday to unveil a glorious, horticultural oasis within the community.
People got the rare chance to wander around their neighbours’ gardens and even have tea and lunch on some of the pretty lawns.
The Open Gardens and Studios Day was organised by Robert Budwig, Andrea Szalanczi and Jacqui Roche from the Queen’s Park Area Residents’ Association (QPARA).
Mr Budwig, of Victoria Road, said: “It went incredibly well. We had a fantastic turnout.
“The weather was lovely and lots of new families who have just moved to the area had a great time looking around the beautiful gardens. We actually met our new neighbours for the first time. It is a lovely way to being people in the community together and have a chat with your neighbours.
“Tea was served in the popular Tea Garden which is always a highlight while classical music was performed by The Palace Band.”
