Continuing with the summer events in the village, next weekend sees the village residents opening their gardens for the ever-popular biannual Fairlight Open Gardens.For two days, Saturday and Sunday, July 1st & 2nd, between 11 am 

and 4 pm, 13 gardens will be open to walk around, relax in, eat, drink, and be merry!

Refreshments, including tea, coffee, cakes, savory snacks, ploughman’s lunches, hot dogs, homemade ice cream, and cold beers and wines are available at various gardens.

Plus of course, The Cove Pub and Restaurant will be open on both days from midday, with live music on Sunday.
There’s also the opportunity to buy local artwork, handmade jewelry, and even Funky Hen clothes.
Tickets, valid for all gardens on both days, are now available from The Village Stores and Garden Gems, plus at any of the gardens on the day, £8 per person, children free.
This event, kindly sponsored by Just Property, hopes to raise much-needed funds for local charities, including MOPP, Fairlight Playgroup and Nursery, and Community First Responders
.Here’s hoping the lovely summer weather continues, for what promises to be a wonderful weekend.
