Over the weekend of the 6th and 7th July, wonderful residents of Shifnal will get together with Love Shifnal to open their beautiful private back gardens (and 1 front garden!) in aid of local Shropshire charity, Community Resource.

NEW FOR 2024 - Each ticket purchased online will be entered into a prize draw to win one of three David Austin English Roses! The more tickets purchased, the more chances to win! Tickets will be drawn on Monday 8th July.

With 6 gardens across Shifnal to explore, plus the Millennium Sensory Garden it should be a fantastic weekend! On Saturday, your wristbands will also gain you entry to an exhibition of historical gardens in Shifnal at the Fire Station Exhibition Centre and Meeting Room (Shrewsbury Road), kindly displayed by the Shifnal History Group.

On Sunday, Seniors Hall, Curriers Lane will be open for refreshments.

Joining us this year will be the Shifnal Millennium Sensory Garden which has been designed to be accessible for people of all ages and abilities (wheelchair friendly). The garden attracts a variety of wildlife and we have a hedgehog hide and bug hotels as well as lots of bird boxes. Wide footpaths, seating areas, raised flower beds, planting designed for scent, colour, texture, sound and touch are features of the garden. The garden will be holding a plant sale during the event with all proceeds going to support the gardens future.
