We usually have 2 barbecue in June and it is usually cold and/or wet. This year was no exception from the weather point of view but it did not matter because we had decided to have a strawberry tea. This was a huge success and will probably be repeated next year. There was a splendid array of sandwiches with bits of salads and mixed crisps to go with them and delicious dishes of strawberries and cream with shortbread biscuits just to round everything off.

We were very fortunate on our Open Gardens Day as the sun shone and welcomed visitors to the village. Time and energy spent on publicising the event in newspapers, diocesan websites, parish magazines and the media proved worthwhile as we had visitors from Norwich, Hunstanton, Dersingham, Brandon and I’m told there were even a couple from Finland! There were nearly 160 people visiting, many for the umpteenth time! All were appreciative of our gardens – I’ve never had so many people round mine on one afternoon. Anyone who has wondered about opening but worried about a weed out of place need not worry, as the visitors are interested in flowers, wildlife, general interest. One person commented to me about the number of butterflies, which I hadn’t noticed for myself, but as soon as she did they were around everywhere!! Many thanks to all the people who opened their gardens, some of whom managed to do other things as well. It was good to have all the familiar gardens plus a new one and one that had changed ownership. I hope you all enjoyed the day.
