Open Gardens in Histon and Impington

Let us visit your garden – virtually

June 12, 2020 Uncategorized 0


We know you all miss Open Gardens on the in-between year when it’s not on, so this year we decided to hold a Virtual Open Gardens event on Sunday 5 July to cheer us all up in these difficult times, but we need your help to do it.

Would you like to show off your garden as part of our virtual event? Have you had extra time to lavish it with even more care than usual during lockdown but have no-one to show it off to? If so, we’re right with you!

We’re asking residents of Histon & Impington to make a short video (maximum 5 minutes) of their garden/outdoor space so we can safely show our community the beautiful private spaces of our villages, via our website and social media.

The video doesn’t need to be professional quality and you don’t even have to appear in it yourself if you’re camera-shy. You can show us as much or as little as you’d like; it could be an overall flavour of your garden, just the bits you’re proud of (we’ve all got work-in-progress areas), or even just your favourite plant or spot in your garden. It can be silent or voiced-over by you or someone else. We want it all!

Your video should be:

  • Of a garden in Histon or Impington only
  • In landscape mode
  • Clear and in focus
  • No more than 5 minutes long

Please send your video, along with your full name, street and village name to info@opengardens.org. The closing date for entries is 5pm on Thursday 2 July. Looking forward to hearing from you to help us brighten up these challenging times.

IMPORTANT: By sending in your video, you agree to publication on the Open Gardens website http://hisimp.com/og/ and other Open Gardens social media channels. We cannot guarantee to show all videos submitted and the final choice is at the discretion of the Open Gardens Committee.
