The Cornwall Wildlife Trust have had a very successful year with its Open Garden scheme, and has raised more than £12,400. Some of the Open Garden events have been held near our Fowey hotel which ran from April to October this year.

The money raised will go toward the Trust's ongoing work which protects the Cornish wildlife and many wild places, located all across the county.

The season of Open Gardens began well, with the first event seeing more than 300 people at Pedn Billy on the Helford Passage, which raised £2,500.

Chris Betty, a spokesperson for the Cornwall Wildlife Trust said, "This total is nearly triple that of what the scheme made just a few years ago and has only been made possible through the support of the Trusts amazing volunteers, garden owners and the thousands of people, mostly locals, who have spent their Sundays visiting the gardens."

A total of 12 gardens located throughout Cornwall have taken part in the Open Garden scheme. The gardens ranged in size from half an acre to 52 acres. Some were coastal, others are hidden away in woodland areas, and others a suburban hidden treasure.

The scheme will run again next year, and in the meantime when staying at our Fowey hotel you can visit the nature reserves the Cornwall Wildlife Trust manages, and bask in the stunning autumn scenery and spot the wildlife.
