What a lovely day we had for our Open Gardens Event on 11th August! The weather was gorgeous, ideal for a lovely stroll around the village to visit the gardens and stalls. We had a large number of people visit the gardens and participate in the games, competitions etc. Quite a few children entered the Spot the Bird Competition, and the winner was Fred Casson – well done Fred! Enjoy your birdwatching kit and the family day out to the Suffolk Owl Sanctuary at Stonham Barns in Suffolk. Alice Hames won the Duck Game – clever girl Alice! Hope you enjoyed your chocolate cake! We raised the magnificent sum of £1,440.80 for our two chosen charities – Clic Sargent (who will receive £757.97) and Mind UK( who will receive £682.82) and this money will be forwarded to them shortly. Many thanks to everyone who opened their gardens and to all our families, friends and helpers who made this event a runaway success. We couldn’t have done it without you! We would also like to thank everyone who donated prizes for the competitions and raffle, with special mention to:
Farm Foods, Forestry Commission, Marks & Spencer, Iceland, Mundford Fish Bar, Roys of Wroxham, Sainburys, Village Hair, Suffolk Owl Sanctuary (Stanham Barns), Thursford Collection, The Wellington (Feltwell).
Once again – thank you everybody
