Explore the first open garden event for South Bucks Hospice
SOUTH Bucks Hospice, which has been established in the area for almost 30 years, is inviting local people to come along to its very first open gardens event on Sunday, August 31.
Visit Pusey House on Amersham Road, High Wycombe, from 1pm and enjoy the beautiful sights the garden has to offer.
Explore the natural beauty of its varying blooms and hidden treasures as you enjoy an afternoon miniature cream tea and a glass of bubbly in support of the hospice.
For keen gardeners, there will be an opportunity to buy potted plants and listen to a talk from a landscape gardener who will be in attendance on the day and will be talking about garden design and layout.
The garden plays a really important part in healing and relaxation for patients attending the hospice.
South Bucks Hospice provides expert services to local people with incurable illnesses, lymphedema sufferers and those with chronic illnesses.
The hospice helps with pain and symptom control, provides expert palliative and clinical nursing care, and emotional and practical support.
This includes personal counselling services to patients as well as those supporting them, such as family, friends and carers.

For the past year, Waitrose, in Penn Road, Beaconsfield, has had Iain Rennie as its charity of the year. During this period, an in-store collection was held over two days, which managed to raise almost £1,000 thanks to the generosity of Waitrose customers.
The store then hosted a ‘Cheese and Wine Call my Bluff’ evening at St Teresa’s Church Hall, which also brought in £1,000.
Throughout the year, Waitrose has helped the Beaconsfield fundraising group for Iain Rennie by supplying advice, wine and glasses for a number of other events.
As a mark of gratitude, Iain Rennie fundraisers have presented the staff at Waitrose with an engraved plaque in recognition and appreciation of the generous help they have given.
