Reveley Lodge Garden open day raises thousands for good causes
Hundreds flocked to a Bushey Heath garden to raise thousands of pounds for charity at the weekend.
Reveley Lodge Garden, in Elstree Road, welcomed visitors on Saturday as it opened its doors to raise money for charitable causes as part of the National Garden Scheme.
Adults were charged £3.50 and children gained free entry.
Cards from the Bushey Museum and homemade cakes were on offer, as well as candles and honey, which were being sold by beekeepers.
A total of £2,452 was raised, which will be divided up between Macmillan Cancer Support, Marie Curie Cancer Care, Help the Hospices and Parkinson’s UK.
One of the garden’s trustees, Madeleine McCormack, said she is delighted with the show of support from the community.
She said: "I didn’t really know what to expect but it has exceeded my wildest dreams."
Reveley Lodge, which features lawns, a rose garden, herb, medicinal and scented beds surrounding a mulberry tree, was open from 2pm until 6pm.
Ms McCormack estimates that about 500 people attended the open day.
