Quarndon Open Gardens and Scarecrow Trail. Ways to join in the summer fun

Spruce up those borders and polish the plant pots, or just throw open your garden gate and invite friends and neighbours round for a chin wag about plants. More »

After a 10 year break, Quarndon Open gardens will be back in 2020 combined with a Scarecrow trail so everyone can be involved in celebrating our beautiful village.

So if you would like to open your garden please contact Julie Pollock by 1st March 2020 so we can get an idea of numbers.

All gardens welcome: big, small, modern, traditional, vegetable, ornamental, wildlife, children's...

Proceeds from the Garden 'admission ticket' will go to 'Quarndon Events' to fund village initiatives such as Blooming Quarndon.

If owners of individual gardens would like to host other activities - plant sales for instance - then proceeds can go to the charity of their choice.

Spotted anything beautiful - or untoward? Let the Parish Council know

Walking in the village or using one of its many delightful footpaths as the daylight grows longer? The Parish Council is always grateful to find out your impressions: a photo of a delightful view perhaps, a report of an object, or even a sound, somewhere you wouldn't expect. More »

The photo shows a view over Duffield from the permissive path near Montpellier. There are many more splendid images on the website Gallery.

Contact the Parish Clerk at clerk@quarndon-pc.gov.uk or web@quarndon-pc.gov.uk for photos. » Less
