Open Gardens – Thank you


Thank you to everyone who supported the event, by opening their gardens, helping in the village hall, baking cakes and so much more.

We raised an amazing £1313.

We were lucky with the weather – a sunny day between two very wet days so we had lots of visitors.

Congratulations to the winners of the Bugs, Bees and Butterflies Trail:

  • Clair for her witty snail’s race
  • June & Gina for the beautiful flower butterflies
  • Yvonne for Charlotte the Spider.
