Eaton Rise Garage Sale and Open Garden
Eaton Rise Residents’ Association are holding a garage sale on Saturday 6th July between 10am and 2pm – and there is also a special garden open to the public.
If you live on Eaton Rise, why not join in to help make this a great community event. You can be included in the garage sale leaflet for just a £5 entry fee and can sell whatever you like. The deadline for entries is Sunday 23rd June.
Items on sale will include bric-a-brac, household items, tools, furniture, books, toys and games, clothes, local honey, preserves and chutney, DVDs, garden pots, at least one cycle and lots of plants! You name it, you might find it! Sellers can donate all or some of their takings to a charity or organisation of their choice and this can be mentioned in the leaflet to encourage support of their stall. Charities and local community organisations that will benefit include East Anglian Air Ambulance, Big C, The Neesa Project, EACH, Alzheimer’s Society, Tuckswood Library Community Garden and LTC (Lakenham and Town Close) Green Spaces.
Leaflets will be on sale on the day at the United Reformed Church, Ipswich Road, NR4 6QR, where you will also find refreshments and toilet facilities. The leaflet will cost £1 and will include a map of Eaton Rise showing buyers where to get their bargains.
All stallholders’ entry fees and proceeds from leaflet sales will go to The Friends of Danby Wood, to help with the conservation of this beautiful urban woodland.
If you would like more information, please contact Pam at [email protected] or on 07904 584555.
As an added bonus, an exceptional garden will be open during the garage sale! The garden at 21 Broadhurst Road belongs to David and Beverley Woods, who describe it as ‘Around the world in 80 steps!’ This delightful south facing garden takes you from the Mediterranean to Japan. Highlights include over 20 varieties of pine, over two dozen Japanese maples, salvias, palms, tree ferns and interesting topiary in an unusual planting layout, and mature trees from adjoining gardens create a ‘borrowed landscape’ feel. Please note that the drive and garden paths are mainly gravel. There is an entry fee of £3.50 on behalf of the National Garden Scheme, who donate most of their proceeds to cancer nursing charities.
