Shere Open Gardens 2016
Sunday 26th June
On Sunday 26th June, Shere, one of the most picturesque villages in Surrey, nestling at the foot of the North Downs between Guildford and Dorking, opened a selection of its beautiful private gardens to the public.
Shere Open Gardens started in 1978 with the intention of raising money for the village hall which was in desperate need of repair. It proved so popular that it quickly became an annual event in the village’s calendar and over the last 38 years has raised more than money for many local causes. The 2016 event raised over £10,000 for local causes, thanks to the tireless efforts of the many gardeners and supporters who made the day such a success.
