Visitors enjoyed an afternoon of fun in the beautiful surroundings of the Bishop of Norwich’s Gardens.

The event on Sunday was in aid of family support charity Home-Start Norwich.

To celebrate the occasion, the gardens were decorated in enough bunting to reach the top of Norwich Cathedral’s spire (96 metres) and each piece of bunting featured a child’s drawing of their family.

More than 400 people enjoyed the day which included music, garden games and storytelling.

Geraldine Duffy, the charity’s acting chair of trustees, said: “The day was all about raising funds for Home-Start Norwich as well as awareness, so that families know how we can help, and also to encourage more people to volunteer.

“We were delighted to welcome so many people.”
