What: Garden open, in aid of Independent Age

Where: The Gardens of Skirsgill Park, Penrith CA11 0DH

When: Sunday 22 May, 2pm to 5pm

Entry: £3.50, children free

The gardens of Skirsgill Park, near Penrith, will be open on Sunday 22 May between 2pm and 5pm. Situated on the River Eamont, the gardens include a peaceful river walk as well as a well-established azalea garden which dates back over 100 years. This little-known garden is rarely open to the public and will delight visitors with its impressive show of colour and its collection of rare trees.

All proceeds from the afternoon will go to Independent Age, a unique charity providing lifelong support to thousands of older people across the UK, including around 370 people in the North East and Cumbria.

This event is supported by the Keswick office of Brewin Dolphin, one of the UK’s largest private client investment managers. Refreshments will be available in addition to a bring-and-buy produce and plant sale. Most parts of the garden are suitable for wheelchair access and dogs are permitted if kept on a lead.
