East Carleton villagers open their gardens for charity
Residents in a south Norfolk village are opening up their gardens to the public next month to raise money for two great causes.
Around 15 gardens in East Carleton near Mulbarton will be open for viewing on Sunday, July 1 from 10am-4pm to raise cash for the fabric fund of St Mary's Church and the East Anglian air ambulance.
Tea, cakes and cream teas will be available in the church along with music and singing, whilst some residents are also offering cream teas and ice creams as well as plant sales on the day.
Hilary Springett of St Mary's Church, said: 'The gardens we have in such a small village are actually really diverse and interesting.
We have cottage gardens, utilitarian, tropical and even water gardens amongst those on show, it should be a great day. We are so grateful to everyone who is taking part'.
