The popular biennial event took place on the last weekend in June. Visitors enjoyed 6 gardens open to the public in aid of St.Andrew’s Church. Gardens ranged from the great and glorious to ones to smaller gems and one undergoing extensive renovation and with a newly sown wild flower meadow – but all of the gardens are well loved and owned by enthusiasts – so something for everyone to see and enjoy. Refreshments including sandwiches over lunchtime were served in the riverside gardens of The Mill. The Open Gardens raised £1600 for St.Andrew’s Church and grateful thanks were expressed by churchwarden Andrew Lyle, for the hard work and support given by the community.
