Thank you to everyone who came to our Hallowe’en event … around 100 children showing off their amazing costumes and working their way through various games and craft activities. It all ended rather beautifully with a procession walking round the Gardens following Teignbridge Ranger Sian and her bat equipment listening for bats! Thank you too to Artstorm, Shaldon Wildlife Trust and Coffee-to-Go.
We also raised £22.05 in the collection bucket.

Hallowe’en in the Gardens, Saturday October 29th, 5-7pm

October 23, 2016

It’s been something of a last minute decision but with no bonfire on the beach this year we thought we’d ‘go for it’. It’s Homeyard’s ‘secret garden’ qualities with the Castle and Witches Cave (and its associated story of Old Mother Gum) that make it the perfect setting for Halloween. There’ll be magical things to do, eat and drink. Skeletons, witches, wizards, young and old are welcome!

Thank you to everyone who braved the chilly weather to join in the Easter fun and games in the Gardens. Thank you too to our helpers, Artstorm for the craft workshop, and Morrisons and Tesco for the eggs.

August 25, 2015

We have absolutely definitely been successful with our application to the Heritage Lottery Fund and were able to make the announcement to the village at the Wine & Cheese Party in the Curry’s riverside garden – a very special evening. Wenna conjured up a delicious spread and Fred’s auctioneering skills were admired by those in his garden as well as neighbouring plots! Many thanks to Fred and Wenna for their generosity and to everyone who donated auction lots: – to Rosemary Williams whose textile masterpiece of the Castle has been bought by and for the village, to Felicity at Clochemerle, the Morgans at Farthings, and Matt Wilding , tenor of this parish. To Nic at the Zoo, Peter French at The Clipper, Phil at Orsman’s butchers, to Hair Razors, Coffee Rush, Luders and the Yummy Shop. Also to the committee and Friends who always come up trumps. And to the special person who quietly, generously boosted the evening’s total. Thank you all. Another £1,700 to add to the £347,000 we were already celebrating. Work will be underway soon.

Easter Fun in the Gardens

March 19, 2015

Easter for young children in Homeyards Gardens will be celebrated on Thursday 2nd April from 10:00 to 12:00. Lots of crafts, games and chocolate of course; and this year a nature trail from which we’re hoping to award prizes for best photos, so bring your phones or cameras, and maybe a picnic if the weather’s fine.
