Many villagers have agreed to open their gardens to help raise money and visitors can stroll through beautiful, well-tended and interesting gardens some of which may contain a few surprises.

The event is open from 11am until 5pm each day and lunches and refreshments, as well as car parking, entry brochures, Grand Draw tickets and information about Pennoyer's are available at the village hall.
