The annual Galmpton Open Gardens and Scarecrow Trail is taking place this coming Sunday, 9th June. A dozen gardens around the village will have their gates open to welcome visitors between 11.00 a.m. and 4.00 p.m., with four being new for 2019. Admission is by a “Garden Passport” available to purchase at £5 per person (children free) in advance from Galleon Stores, The Manor Inn or Eric Lloyd & Co or on the day at the information point at the village hall. The gardens range from a classic cottage garden, through a garden worthy of the Chelsea flower show to an evolving garden set off by a sweeping manicured lawn. Refreshments are available in the village hall throughout the day, with The Manor Inn also open for Sunday lunch. The Open Gardens Day gives visitors a great opportunity to stroll around many parts of this delightful village nestling between the sea and the river. The event is supported by Eric Lloyd & Co and The Manor Inn. Eric Lloyd & Co’s office at Churston Broadway has recently completed sales on six properties in and around the village and currently has a choice of properties on the market. These include a chalet bungalow in Higher Warborough Road, a family style house in Slade Lane, a grand design style home in Galmpton Farm Close as well two holiday bungalows at Galmpton Holiday Park.
