Open Garden event Broxa 3rd August

August 3, 2024 @ 14:00 – 16:30

I have had this message from Ian Popely regarding an event which we have supported in the past. For our new members Pauline served on the Scarborough Nats committee for many years and was also an avid botany and butterfly surveyor.

Just to let you all know that I am planning to hold a final Open Garden in memory of Pauline at Broxa this year, on Saturday 3rd August(on what would have been her 70th Birthday), between 2.00 and 4:30pm. at 2, Red Briar Cottages Broxa YO13 0BP

There will be good company, cakes etc., a book stall, plant sales and the garden’s phlox should be in full flower.

There is no entrance fee, but donations towards refreshments would be welcomed.

If you cannot make it on the day, but wish to make a donation to APF in memory of Pauline, you can find details on

So far over £5000 has been raised for APF research.

As it is the final Open Garden at Broxa I am holding a special raffle and there are two amazing prizes. Pauline purchased an award winning Phlox watercolour ( value £1200) and a limited edition print ( value £150) and raffle tickets can be purchased at £10 each and I hope to draw the winning ticket on the day. 1st Prize: the original painting.  2nd prize: The Print ( photos attached).

I hope you feel this is a good idea. I will also invite RHS Hardy Plant Society members as well as friends of Pauline for this final celebration.
