An Open Gardens event has achieved another successful year in a market town.
Wymondham Open Gardens has been running in the town for more than 35 years.
This year's event proved one of the most successful with 1,100 entry programmes being sold.
Almost 40 green-fingered residents opened their gardens and local organisations donated 37 prizes for the raffle.
During the weekend £7876 was raised, in contrast to the £1,000 raised for charity in its first year.
