Blooming wonderful! Open Gardens helping more children

As many of you know, Leggett Immobilier is the proud sponsor of Open Gardens/Jardins Ouverts, the fabulous scheme that encourages people to open up their gardens to the public and help raise money for charity.

This is the seventh year, and last month our local agent in Chantilly, Bruno Taxy, presented a cheque alongside the Aga Khan. They welcomed more disabled children in the presentation event this year from the FAM Quelque Chose En Plus, and they also enjoyed a wonderful day out at the plant fair and the stables. Orane, child ambassador of A Chacun son Everest and her family did a sterling job raising funds with a tombola. The prizes were donated very generously by the other exhibitors, and €17,500 was raised in 2019, bringing the total to €93,000.

    This article caught my eye! I’m emigrating to France in 3 weeks’ time and renting in Gourge, near Parthenay first. Thank you so much for your weekly emails with property details, which I have been studying every time I get them……since March, when I met two of your guys at the Place in the Sun exhibition in London.
    I am a very keen gardener, and have opened my place up to the public for my local hospice, and have also been lucky enough to have been invited into The NGS (National Gardens’ Scheme) for whom I have also opened. I live in the South-East of England.
    As soon as I buy in France you might like to accept my request to be included in your scheme, if you deem me and my garden-to-be suitable.
