Age UK Norfolk is inviting people to take part in their Open Garden Season, which runs until the end of the summer, which will see peoples garden's open to the public to help raise money for the charity.

Chief Executive of Age UK Norfolk Hilary MacDonald said: 'We hope that garden lovers across Norfolk will be inspired to join us, whether as a gardener opening up your garden or as a visitor taking the opportunity to enjoy Norfolk gardens.'

Roy Dickinson took part in the season last year. 'It was lovely' he said 'a lot of visitors were keen to take away ideas from our garden and transfer them to their own.'

Money raised will go towards benefiting the lives of elderly people in Norfolk.
