What's on in Wigan
Wigan and Leigh Hospice Gardens’ Open Day
Sunday 19th July, 11am - 4pm
Wigan and Leigh Hospice gardens will once again open as part of the National Gardens Scheme.
Our gardens have colourful flower beds at the front, and behind the hospice visitors will discover three ponds and a Chinese bridge donated by the Whitworth Art Gallery.
Our Dedicate A Daisy memorial garden offers a chance for reflection and as the gardens are adjacent to Amberswood Common they are a haven for wildlife.
The gardens at the hospice are a hidden sanctuary for our patients and their visitors right in the middle of Hindley.
North West In Bloom awarded our gardens Gold in 2018 and Level 5 (Outstanding) in 2019 in the Hospice category.
The entrance fee is £3.50 & refreshments will be available to buy.
