40th Birthday Garden Fete

17 September, 12 - 4pm

Join us to celebrate Farleigh’s 40th birthday

There is no need to book in advance, please just come along on the day.

On Saturday, 17 September, we will be opening the gardens of Farleigh Hospice from 12-4pm for a special garden fete and heritage display, marking four decades of Farleigh providing hospice care across mid Essex.

Garden Fete

There will be plenty to enjoy – including live music, food, refreshments, a bar and a variety of exciting stalls – as well as fun for the family with a petting zoo, garden games and face painting.

To mark the special occasion, we will be burying a time capsule, filled with 40th birthday keepsakes, including the winning entries from our recent children’s art competition.

Our Heritage Display

From the purchase of our first building on New London Road in 1984, all the way to our Hospice UK Award win in 2021, there have been many defining moments in our history. Our heritage display, filled with original photographs, newspaper articles, letters and building plans, will take you on a wonderful journey of all the people, milestones and memories that have made Farleigh the hospice it is today.

It promises to be a great afternoon, and we hope you can join us!

Please note:

There will be no onsite parking at Farleigh Hospice on the day, however, parking will be available at Chelmer Valley High School (Court Rd, Broomfield, Chelmsford, CM1 7ER) and in the surrounding area.
