Hidden Gardens (29th June 2014)

The gardens chosen this year took the participants out of Town and along Hepburn Gardens. Many visitors took the opportunity to avail themselves of the shuttle bus loaned by the COSMOS Centre to whom our grateful thanks. Donations for a trip in the bus amounted to over £50. In addition to the regular three, the Museum Garden, 46 South Street and St Johnís Garden, our visitors enjoyed quite a variety of new gardens including the St Andrews Organic Allotment at Kinburn Park. Many gardeners supported the event by supplying refreshmentsí, these were greatly appreciated and consumed with relish. Visitors to June Baxterís garden enjoyed the most delicious strawberries so generously donated by Allan Hill Farm. As in previous years, the Museum Curator and the Volunteers under the charge of Kate Ekanger, did a splendid job. The excellent stalls and refreshments were much appreciated by the visitors whose purchases helped to swell the coffers. The array of stalls at St Johnís Garden was both varied and most interesting. The catering team led so ably by John Beaton, did us proud with the most splendid selection of delicious home baking and mouth watering freshly filled rolls, the latter selling out very quickly. As in previous years, the musical entertainment was in the hands of The Swilcan Singers led so ably by their conductor Janice Stewart, and the Fife Horn Union. Both have indicated a wish to return in 2015.

It is evident that we have a growing number of visitors from further a field. It is our intention to focus our advertising this year with this in mind in the hope of attracting a greater number. The weather was somewhat kinder than 2013. Our most grateful thanks go to everyone who took part in what ever way and to Murray Donald LLP (now Thorntons Law LLP) our event sponsors.
