With 15 homes opening throughout Alverstoke in Gosport, people can wander into people’s back gardens with teas, home-made cakes and even a Pimms tent at the current parish centre.

The regeneration project has been running for several years, and is raising money for a new parish centre. Planning permission has been granted and official plans for the building have been drawn up, but further funding still needs to be secured.

Last year more 500 people visited the Alverstoke Garden Walkabout, bought plants and cuttings and enjoyed teas, raising in excess of £6,000 for the parish fund.

Tickets are on sale at the parish centre in Green Road.
