Hestercombe is delighted to announce that a number of beautifully-crafted toadstools are now available to bid on at auction. Perfect as an outdoors centrepiece in a garden, patio or balcony, the toadstools are all carved from solid wood, and have been painted by a range of artists and school groups who all live locally.
The colourful toadstools, which were on display in Rook Wood as part of The Mushroom Magic Trail, have all been designed around the theme of 'magic'. Each is available to view on the Marquee Lawn until Friday 17th September. Online eBay auctions for each toadstool commence on Tuesday 7th September and end 10 days later on Friday 17th September. NB: Toadstools are for collection only.
Three of the toadstools on display are not available at auction, as they are part of the Toadstool Raffle. Tickets are available until Friday 17th September via the Hestercombe Gift Shop, and cost £2 each.
All monies raised via the raffle and auction will go towards supporting Hestercombe Gardens Trust, an independent charity ~ and will help us maintain, restore and develop the beautiful, historic gardens for the benefit of future generations. Thank you!
