A CHARITY which runs three properties as homes for the elderly is holding a garden party.

The Manor Trust, in Bedhampton, was set up by concerned residents who felt too many of the area’s grand houses were being targeted by developers to be bulldozed or turned into flats.

The Manor, The Elms and The Lodge are now all homes for elderly Bedhampton residents. The garden party is at The Manor, Edward Gardens, on Wednesday from 2pm to 4.30pm.

There will be books and nearly new clothes for sale and refreshments will include home-made cakes, bread, jam and preserves.

Entrance is £1 and money raised will go towards the upkeep of the homes. Councillor Gerald Shimbart, the deputy mayor of Havant, will open the event.
