The Open Gardens day in July was another great success in the Bloomin’ Warley calendar that brought visitors old and new from far and wide for the second year of this event.
A percentage of the proceeds raised was donated to the local charity, the
Ebenezer Church Food & Support Drop-In in Halifax, and a letter of thanks has been received by WCA for the donation of £100.

This is a slideshow of images from the Jubilee Gathering in the Garden by St John’s Church held in the parkland setting of Warley House Gardens.
As one would expect from the British summer, it rained cats and dogs for most of the day and rain ultimately stopped play but not before a lot of fun was had with picnics, BBQ, bar and live music.
