Winterton Virtual Open Gardens
Many of you will know that Winterton Open Gardens was to take place on July 18-19th, 2020. Sadly a decision to cancel the event was made early on in the 'lockdown' when it became clear that planning could not take place and there was no guarantee that it could be safely held under social distancing and other guidelines. Each year it has been held it has created significant interest and it has also contributed much badly needed funding to All Saints' Church in Winterton.
In its place All Saints will arrange a Winterton Virtual Open Gardens Weekend on 18-19th July, 2020. There will be an online collection of photos and short videos of gardens in Winterton. Any Winterton resident is encouraged to submit images/videos which can cover a range of ideas. There will be a link to the All Saints online fundraising page so that those who view the site online will have the opportunity to make donations if they wish. Those who submit images/videos will be encouraged to email family and friends to view the site when it is online that weekend.
Things you need to know now about the images/videos required:
They must be taken in a garden/allotment/houseplant/window box in Winterton.
They may be taken at any time of the year.
They may show your favourite view [part of the garden, a close-up of a favourite plant or an aspect of wildlife in the garden] or anything which sparks your interest and gives you joy.
Short videos [ideally no more than 60 seconds] might show a walk in your garden or you carrying out gardening tasks.
Other ideas are possible such as before and after photos showing changes you have made to the garden or time-lapse images showing a blossom opening.
If possible add a short sentence or two to indicate what is special/joyful about each image/video.
Upload your entry before July 14th, 2020 so that there is time to create the site online. Details of special Facebook page to follow.
- All Saints retains editorial control of which images are placed on its websites.
Contact all your family and friends and ask them to view the site on 18-19 July. Explain that they will be encouraged to offer online donations to All Saints at Winterton as the real Open Gardens event had to be cancelled.
