Cornwall Wildlife Trust, protecting wildlife and place near our Fowey hotel

Cornwall Wildlife Trust have announced a record breaking year this year, after it was revealed they raised £11,600 through their Open Gardens scheme.

The scheme involved owners opening up their gardens to the public as a way of raising money, which will be used by the Trust as they continue their ongoing work to protect both Cornish wildlife and wild places.

Across Cornwall, 11 gardens took part in the event, which ran from the start of April to the end of August. They ranged in size from half an acre right up to 52 acres, and were located across the breadth of the county, showcasing the range of environments that can be found in the South West. Some gardens were positioned on the coast, whilst others were hidden away in woodlands.

Last year, the scheme made roughly £8,600 and raised £4,500 the year before that, which shows just how much of a success this year was!

Bookings have already begun for next year's Open Gardens, which will include some new locations, some of which could well be near our Fowey hotel!

Why not come along next year and visit some of the gardens for yourself? Not only will you be able to experience otherwise hidden beauty, but will also help to protect Cornwall's wildlife, and ensure the Trust break their record again next year!
