An open gardens event at a village near Wymondham has raised thousands of pounds for two good causes.

Seventeen householders opened their gardens up to the public in Wicklewood on June 17, which raised just over £2,000.

Half of the funds will go to East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices whilst the other £1,000 will go to Wicklewood Parish Council towards the purchase of some swings in the children’s playground at the village hall off High Street.
