TV gardener Charlie Dimmock to lead summer celebrations in Twyford
28th July 2021 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm
Local retirees are invited to join TV presenter and gardening expert Charlie Dimmock at McCarthy Stone’s Loddon House Retirement Living development in Twyford later this month as part of an exclusive summer celebration. Charlie Dimmock first shot to fame in 1997, when she joined the gardening series Ground Force. Since then, she has presented many programmes such as The Joy of Gardening and Charlie’s Garden Army. Charlie is currently a member of the presenting team on Garden Rescue, a series focusing on garden transformations. The exciting event will take place at the development on London Road on Wednesday 28th July from 11am-3pm.
Guests will be treated to strawberries and cream in Loddon House’s landscaped gardens before Charlie makes a special appearance at 12pm. Charlie
will then entertain guests with a gardening demonstration, providing advice and inspiration for colourful planting schemes that will bloom all year round. Event attendees can ask the TV presenter their own gardening queries as part of a Question-and-Answer session and there will be an opportunity to take a picture with Charlie during a socially distanced meet and greet.
Attendees are required to book in advance to secure a space on the guest list by calling 0800 310 0383.
Charlie Dimmock said: “I’m really looking forward to the event at Loddon House. I can’t wait to meet everyone and answer their gardening questions and as well as sharing tips during my demonstration. It will be a fun day.”
Verity McKay, Divisional Marketing Manager at McCarthy Stone Southern, added: “Gardening can have such a positive effect on mental
wellbeing, and after what has been such a difficult year for many, we’re delighted to welcome Charlie Dimmock to Loddon House. “We’re really looking forward to bringing the local community together again. With the weather improving, it is the perfect opportunity for our homeowners at Loddon House and retirees in the local area to join the McCarthy Stone team in the development’s landscaped gardens and share gardening tips with the TV expert. “We’d like to
invite local retirees in the area to join us for an afternoon of summer celebrations – not only will they have the chance to meet Charlie, but they can also enjoy delicious strawberries and cream, socialise and have fun.”
