Epsom & Ewell

Gerties Gardeners

When this group started in 2021 the idea was to do some adhoc planting ie Rosebery Park flowerbed for Borough in Bloom 2021 and we were delighted to help Epsom win a silver medal in the competition.

Now we have a new and ongoing challenge - the Gertrude Longhurst Memorial Garden
This garden was set out in 1954 in memory of Gertrude Longhurst. In 1972 it was still looking lovely with a raised bed flower clock and beautiful planting in the front bed and benches to sit and enjoy the sunshine. However by 2022 when we became involved it was looking very unloved.
We've started to prune, weed, and sweep. Sam Whitehead the Epsom & Ewell Streetcare Manager and two of her team Pete and Trevor are helping us to make the garden beautiful again.
We are getting ready to plant a sensory garden at the front on May 26th 2022 ready for the Borough in Bloom judging on July 5th. After that we intend to continue looking after the garden on a regular monthly basis.
If you've downsized and miss pottering in the garden or if you just like to do a bit of light weeding, pruning and sweeping then speak to Fiona or Tony, they would be delighted to welcome you to the group.

We will also be planting our flower bed in Rosebery Park this year.

Some of our members are also very involved in the Friends of Bourne Hall which meet on the fourth Sunday of each month from 10.00am to 11.30am to tidy and beautify the park surrounding Bourne Hall.
