On Sunday (July,2) eight village home owners will be opening their gardens to show members of the public.

Organiser Linda Arnold said: “It will be a lovely family day out. As well as some beautiful gardens being open there will be delicious lunches and teas served at the village hall and there is also a children’s picture treasure hunt to help them explore the village.”

Tickets are available from the village green and cost £4 for adults with accompanied children free.

The flourishing gardens are open from 10am to 5pm.

Linda added: “The ducks are a new addition to one of the gardens and they can be spotted waddling in the undergrowth or paddling on the pond.”
