Old Pond Garden at Charlton House

News in from Charlton & Blackheath Amateur Horticultural Society (CABAHS) about a family-friendly event at Charlton House this Sunday, 18th April.

Charlton House walled gardens will be open to the public for the first time in over a year. Please bring friends and family along. There is a free Easter trail for the children, with a chocolate prize. This is also the opportunity to see the new planting scheme at the Old Pond Garden, and admire the HUGE effort that the volunteers have made in the Long Borders too. We will have the plans and history on show. There will also be a small plant sales table.

The Horticultural Society’s Spring Show has been cancelled, but there will be some vase displays on show.  The Green Goddess pop-up pub will be at Charlton House on the same day (book in advance).

Also on Sunday will be the “Around the Corner Market” walking trail to craft makers’ houses around Charlton, organised by The Corner At 96. You can view the map of the trail with details of the participants here.

Calling makers of Charlton: Get involved with Around The Corner Market

News from The Corner at 96 in Bramshot Avenue about a lockdown plan to bring hand made and hand grown produce to the neighbourhood on July 4th:

The Corner at 96 has opened as a pop-up shop in Charlton on a fairly regular basis for the last two years, selling gifts and homewares, handmade by locals. We’ve regularly featured studio ceramics, hand knits, jewellery, children’s clothes & accessories, paintings and photography as well as soaps and toiletries.

Whilst we’ve been locked down, some of our regular makers have had success with sales from home, combining the highlighting of an online website with a stall set up in the garden. So we thought we’d try and gather all our local makers together on the same day for a trail to highlight our hand makes, whatever it is you do! It will be July 4th and we hope to create a Google Maps route between makers selling in outside spaces, which we’ll then be promoting ourselves and via each maker. We’re looking for hand mades or hand grown.

We’ve put a sheet together to explain, including checks you’ll need to make to stay legal. Drop us a line at thecornerse7 [@] gmail.com and we’ll get you joined up!

Then, spread the word – encourage your friends and family along, let’s hope it’s a lovely day of walking, discovery & great sales. The map link will be posted as widely as we can from this Saturday.
