This year’s Open Gardens took place last Sunday, 1st July. Unfortunately, visitor numbers were down on last year, which the organisers believe was due to the extremely hot weather and the World Cup. The entrance fee was increased to £7 this year, so, overall the total entrance amount raised was similar to last year. Teas took around £300 less than last year. However, Open Gardens still raised a respectable £2,230 for National Garden Schemes and £158 towards the upkeep of the tubs in the village.
The organisers would like to thank everyone who contributed by opening their garden, helped with getting things ready, helped on the day or donated cakes.
