This is our 6th year of opening gardens in the village and the gardens range from small courtyards to allotments, large rambling gardens, an old hall, cottages and gardens with walks, streams and Koi carp and trout ponds. This year also a number of new gardens not seen before, one of which has taken twelve months to prepare.

Tea, coffee and cakes on sale at the church from 12.30pm. Home made refreshments, cream teas, ice creams, soft drinks and raffles at various gardens, also an art show. Transport ferry links to most gardens. Dogs welcome on leads.

We hope all visitors enjoy their visit as much this year as they did last year - please come and see the changes.
