Garden event signals start of spring
GWILYM and Sally Lloyd Davies will be opening their garden and woodlands at Henblas, Llangristiolus, Anglesey for the seventeenth year to raise money for cancer charities. Each year their snowdrops herald the start of spring and are a welcome sight to many visitors.
Several members of their family and friends have suffered and even lost their lives due to cancer-related diseases and they have always wanted to assist research and find ways to eradicate cancer.
This year it is planned to donate to both Cancer Research UK and Teno- vus Cancer Care UK. Since retiring, Sally has also worked for the Tenovus Cancer Care shop in Llangefni.
Since they have started having this annual event they have raised over £53,000.
Visitors young and old can walk along marked paths in the woodland to admire the drifts of snowdrops and after can enjoy tea/coffee and delicious cakes. Potted snowdrops are also for sale.
Dogs are welcome but as it is the lambing season all dogs MUST be kept on a lead.
It has become quite an annual event for the people in the area and from further afield, many coming year after year and each year some local businesses have assisted with donations and services.
Henblas garden and woodlands will be open two weekends; February 10-11 and February 17-18 from 11am to 4pm. Wellington/strong boots are recommended.
Directions: Exit 6 off A55 then A5 to Rhostrehwfa. Turn left onto B4422 to Aberfraw. After 1.5 mile Henblas is on the left.
