Take a ramble in the roses

Rose Sunday 2020 small

The Frimley Park rose gardens are abloom, and to celebrate the occasion Rose Sunday will be taking place on Sunday, November 7.

The event has been hosted by the Hastings Rose Society, and supported by the Hastings District Council, for many years, and will go ahead if the region is still at Alert Level 2 with restrictions on numbers and physical distancing measures in place.

As well as enjoying the gardens and chatting to Rose Society members, there would be entertainment provided by the Twin City Stompers, a coffee cart, ice-creams, along with children’s entertainment.

The Frimley Rose Garden, the design of which was based on Kew Gardens in England, was first opened on Sunday, November 26, 1967.

Starting with 4000 rose bushes, it is now home to more than 5500 and is widely known as an “Old English” park, which includes a number of historic trees.

The gates will open at 11am, and there will be live music from 12pm to 3pm.

This event will be cancelled if the region moves to COVID Alert Level 3.
