The Challis Garden filled with flowers at the 2014 Fete

To all our visitors and supporters – a glimmer of light at the end of a very long tunnel. The Challis Garden finally opened its gates again on Tuesday 23rd February 2021. The drifts of snowdrops are a sight to behold as are all the other spring flowers beginning to put in an appearance.

Usual opening hours – 9.30am to 12.30am Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays and Sunday afternoons from 1pm to 3pm (2pm to 4pm after the clocks have gone forward).

Logs for sale along with honey, chutneys and Challis apple juice.

But – we must be cautious (as we always have been in Sawston) – no large groups, no big family gatherings. One person to meet one other from a different household or of course, one complete family bubble coming to the Garden for exercise. We’ve missed you all!
