From Press release - all I know!
Southover's annual Open Garden event, fundraising for Southover Bonfire Society returns this Sunday 12th June. This ever-popular event ‚?? last year saw 300 tickets sold, provides a unique opportunity to visit some of Lewes‚?? most secret hidden gardens. This year in particular it will be fascinating to see how the gardens have fared with the unseasonal dry start to the year. Thirteen gardens are opening, of which 6 were open last year, 5 are new and 2 are returning from earlier years. Perennial favourites include Paul Millmore's historic Edwardian garden in Grange Road. There will be a wide range of gardens to see from large traditional English to small more modern interpretations. Subject to access, this year's openings will include St Anne‚??s School in Rotten Row.
Entry is by programme, available at £5 each (¬£3 concessions) from Laportes, St Pancras stores and the Kings Head. Programmes will be for sale on the door at 6 Grange Rd, where cream teas will also be served. Opening times are 2:30pm to 5pm, with a number of gardens remaining open until 6pm ‚?? see programme for details.

Obviously Forks doesn't understand the concept of organising events to cater for a wide range of people's interests in order to widen revenue.

Forks is clearly a member of the thundering herd. Gardens would be wasted on them.

Proves Mr Forks that you have no true love for Bonfire. If you did, you would be supporting other Societies and any fundraisers that they put on to raise the money for the 5th. I am all for friendly rivalry but those who really love bonfire support each other regardless of their society. You must be very bitter about a past experience judging by your posts. I feel sorry for you.

What Lewesian said. It's a dangerous old business this assuming one is, say, second to none. Surely anyone who is truly Bonfire supports all the other societies?

I rest my case. Has it not occurred to you that this sort of divisive closed-mindedness is exactly what could finish Bonfire off for everyone? Which would, of course, include you and whichever allegedly superior society you claim to speak for.

Exactly my point Pandemonia. I hope the rain stays away this weekend for both Waterloo and Southover.
