People enjoy the Bishop’s Gardens in Norwich
People enjoyed admiring the beautiful surrounds of the Bishop's Gardens as part of Norwich's Lord Mayor's Celebrations.
The historic gardens were opened to the public today to raise funds for The Grove, a care home in East Carleton that is run by Leonard Cheshire Disability.
David Barrett, coordinator of The Grove, said the gardens were a wonderful setting to hold a fundraiser and expressed his thanks to the Bishop.
He said the money raised at the event would go towards paying for outings, arts materials, books and other things for the residents.
Lucy Taylor, 53, and Sean Wood, 53, both from the north of the city, said they liked to visit the gardens every year.
