Fressingfield set for garden festival weekend

More than 20 village gardens will be opened up for public viewing for the Fressingfield Garden Festival, which will take place next weekend.

In the village centre, on the Fox and Goose Green, will be a Market Place with marquees and around 20 stalls, ranging from specialist and bedding plants to garden accessories, wrought iron work, small furniture, gifts, crafts, books, strawberries and ice cream.

There will also be a children's trail on the Saturday afternoon and pupils from Fressingfield Primary School will be entertaining visitors with maypole dancing.

The church will be decorated by local groups and individuals with displays of village life and flowers.
