EllenorLions Hospices is pleased to announce that Jean Griffin from BBC Radio Kent has kindly offered to come along to Griffins on Sunday 8th August 2010 to answer any gardening questions that members of the public may have definitely not to be missed!

Griffins is a Designer garden created by David Stevens on behalf of its owners in 2007. David Stevens remit was to create a garden that was as self-managing as possible whilst retaining beauty, which we think you will agree, has been achieved.

The garden is a large, beautiful and relaxing environment with lots to discover. We will once again have a range of stalls including refreshments and a raffle and admission is 3.00 per adult and 50p per child.

Due to limited parking at the venue ALL PARKING is at Anthony Roper School where a Park and Ride service will be in operation at no extra cost, however, members of the public can drop off and collect from Griffins if necessary, but NO parking will be allowed on the premises. The Park and Ride minibus will run from Anthony Roper School to Griffins and back again every 15 minutes.

Come along and support your local EllenorLions Hospices as the proceeds from Griffins Open Garden will go towards helping us to continue caring and supporting children and adults with either a life threatening or a life limiting illness being cared for within the community or at our 15-bedded hospice in Coldharbour Road, Northfleet.

Your support will make a huge difference to our patients and their families and

your support will be very much appreciated!
