Story

On Sunday 28th July, 2024 between 12 noon - 3 pm, David and Victoria Thomas are opening their fabulous garden for free to encourage donations through Ned’s Fund for the Sussex Cricket Foundation.

A free ticket will also include a glass of sparkling wine and some nibbles. When booking tickets, do please consider making a donation to the Foundation.

Located in Kirdford, RH14 0NH, Parsonage Farm is a major garden in beautiful setting developed over 30 years with fruit theme and many unusual plants. Formally laid out on grand scale with long vistas, the garden includes a C18 walled garden with borders in apricot, orange, scarlet and crimson, as well as a topiary walk, pleached lime allée, tulip tree avenue, rose borders and vegetable garden with trained fruit. Other highlights includes a turf amphitheatre, autumn shrubbery, yew cloisters and a jungle walk.

Ned’s Fund is currently giving direct financial support for Diyon, a promising young cricketer who would otherwise be unable to pursue his love of the game. Our funds are being used by the Foundation to help with his travel, provision of kit, and other training expenses.
