MOGpotpeople to take over Mellor and Marple Bridge?

Organisers of Mellor Open Gardens 2021 are hoping that residents and business owners of Mellor and Marple Bridge will support the event on Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th July by decorating the villages with flowerpotpeople which have been called MOGpotpeople.

A great way for the community to get involved

Anyone with spare flowerpots and wishing to be a bit creative can make a display in their front garden or shop window featuring a MOGpotperson of their own design in time for the event.

In the past, to show allegiance to the event, many MOGpotpeople have held a flag of support - featuring a drawing of our own friendly MOGpotperson specially designed by our guest personality, the renowned cartoonist Tony Husband.

If you create a MOGpotperson, please send us a photo to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

MOGpotpeople to take over the Devonshire Arms!

The Devonshire Arms is kindly donating use of their large wooden gazebo where Mellor School will provide an entertaining display of MOGpotpeople too.
