Reepham gardens sought for National Garden Scheme

The National Garden Scheme is looking for gardeners within walking distance of Reepham High School to join the school in opening their gardens in 2022.

Last year, the Papillon Project, which is based at the high school, “approached us with a view to opening for the National Garden Scheme,” said Julia Stafford Allen, NGS county organiser for Norfolk.
“We were so impressed with this wonderful community project and would like to support them by including them in our open gardens scheme in 2022.
“However, we felt that standing on its own it did not quite meet with the expectations of the National Garden Scheme visitor.
“An option would be if the project could open alongside another garden, or a collection of small gardens centred in Reepham.”
She noted that Reepham High School has excellent parking facilities and would be a perfect venue for providing teas.
“It would be a worthwhile and fun incentive over the next year for the children to get their allotment ready for opening for the scheme,” said Ms Stafford Allen.
“It would also bring further awareness of the importance of school allotments, an opportunity for gardeners to share their garden, as well as raising much need funds for our beneficiaries.”
If you are interested in opening your garden, please contact Julia Stafford Allen 07778 169775 or email
