Gardens with own railway open to support Devon’s Air Ambulances
Roger and Barbara Stimpson live in Honiton, and despite health problems are once again opening their garden in order to raise funds for Devon Air Ambulance.
However this isn’t just any garden, as they have a very special G:Gauge (which is now digital) in their garden too, which was built by Barbara. The garden has also been created over the past 10 years and has recently been re-laid.
Caroline Creer, Fundraising Director said “We would like to thank the Stimpsons for once again opening their garden and model railway to the public, in order to raise funds for the Charity. It’s very much a community event, as there are many neighbours and friends who get involved, to help out not only on the open day, but beforehand to ensure the gardens look their best.”
She added “Please go along and support our fantastic fundraisers for their garden opening, its sure to be a great place to look around and spends some relaxing time.”
Open on 15 June from 10am to 5pm, it’s free to go into the gardens at 5 Redwood Close, Honiton, although donations very welcome.
Refreshments will be available by the means of a burger van, which includes teas, coffees and candyfloss.
Roger Stimpson said “Due to my health I see first-hand regularly what fantastic work our ambulance personnel do and there is an ambulance station just around the corner from my house. Being able to open up my garden is a great way for me to be able to give something back.”
