Visit our Award Winning secret gardens on Saturday 9 June, meet your neighbours, and see what grows locally.

Open Gardens

Residents work alongside the charity’s gardener and horticulturalist to make safe, beautiful environments for people to share and enjoy as neighbours which helps foster a great sense of community.

Our gardens are a platform for workshops and social events enabling people to work in their own part of the garden, or to simply relax and enjoy.

Our sheltered housing gardens continue to win awards. For the London Garden Society Competition, in the Large Community Gardens category, Sycamore House won 3rd Place. However, our gardener Jackie, was particularly pleased to find out that, in the Small Community Gardens category, John Betts House came first despite the stiff competition and brought home the Challenge Cup.

Visit us on Saturday, 9th June 2018, 2pm – 5pm

Tickets at the door for £4 or on the www.opensquares.org for the whole weekend. Children under 11 go free.

What’s new at Hammersmith United Charities

our brand new newsletter!

As part of our 400th celebrations last summer, we asked everyone who participated in the “big party” to write a wish for the charity’s future. A very clear message which came out of those wishes was for the members of the charity – residents, staff and trustees – to work more holistically together.
This newsletter – looking at all aspects of the charity and jointly produced by residents and staff – is our first initiative to put that aspiration into practice.

You can read it here – let us know what you think!
