Open Gardens raises over £3,000 for the National Gardens Scheme

This year’s Open Gardens took place last Sunday, 7th July. The organisers were lucky with the weather and visitor numbers were up on last year-335 compared to 240 in 2018.

£3,033.53 was raised for National Gardens Scheme and £212.65 for the Parish Council towards the upkeep of the tubs in the village. This compares to £2,230 and £158 in 2018. A breakdown of this year and previous years results are below.

The organisers were pleased to receive a note from NGS this morning complimenting them on their organisation of the day, including the shuttle service which was introduced this year.

The organisers would like to say thank you to everyone who contributed by opening their garden, helping with getting things ready, or helping on the day. And certainly not forgetting everyone who donated the lovely cakes, which had a lot of compliments!
