HOW YOU CAN HELP
We welcome all volunteers. You can help us by assisting with the maintenance of the grounds. We always appreciate a hand with mowing the lawns, watering and planting the flowers. If you'd like to help us, don't hesitate to give us a call.
With the idea of Gardens of Hansbury first coming to the mind of Donald Miller 47 years ago, this labour of love took more than 10 years to complete and to this day is still being upgraded and meticulously detailed. The name may seem unusual for most people but the origins of it reflect when traveling entertainers often provided shows in the gardens of big houses in the 17th and 18th Century. With the assistance of a team of skilled craftsmen this amazing structure is available for bookings for charities, retired groups and groups of people with disabilities who need somewhere to go to hold their activities and days out.
We welcome elderly walking clubs and any charity related recreational sport here.
We do allow charities to hold fundraising events of many kinds here on our grounds.
Field Trips are always welcome to the Gardens of Hanbury for retired groups, special needs schools and charitable organisations, we will pleasurably accept groups of all sizes. Field Trips should be booked in advance and we do not provide any activities or agendas for groups on trips, we only provide the facilities.
Whether you are vegetarian or you love meat, our barbeques are something your group can have fun with. Bring what you need for the day and enjoy everything in our BBQ pit with your retired group, school class or charitable organisations.
Let your inner picasso out in our Art room. Have a day where you let your mind expressions be forever etched on canvas. It may not be in the National Gallery one day, but as long as you take the opportunity to express yourself and have some fun then we will love it. Be sure to bring your own paints and tools, plan your activities and we will provide you with the room!
A walk around the Gardens of Hanbury is like taking a journey back in time and exploring British culture in a way you don't often get to do in this modern technology age. We have an authentic croquet lawn on our grounds for you to enjoy some friendly competition.
