Snowdrop walk at Hoveton House raises �1,500 for good causes
The beautiful grounds of Hoveton House filled with snowdrops were the perfect setting for a fundraising walk this weekend.
About 200 people took part in the annual the snowdrop and aconite walk near Wroxham today which was organised by Leslie and Tom Blofeld to raise funds for Autism Anglia and also St John's Church, in Hoveton.
Bathed in the bright February sunshine, the snowdrops looked simply stunning, and the event collected about �1,500 which will be divided between the two good causes.
Mr Blofeld, who is the vice president of Autism Anglia and whose four-year-old son Rufus is autistic, said: 'We had a gorgeous day and everybody had a lovely time.
'The garden looked completely beautiful.

As well as enjoying the walk, people also tucked into hot dogs and enjoyed savouring winter soups, and Mr Blofeld said members of the local community had helped with running the event.
'It is a really lovely community event where the community really works together, and everybody has a giggle,' Mr Blofeld said.
Hoveton House is a beautiful 17th century Norfolk house and its garden gate is opened to the public for the annual snowdrop and aconite walk in February each year.
