A larger than expected number of people attended the Glinton Open Gardens during the afternoon of Sunday July 12th. They came to visit the nine village gardens that were open to the public, come to the church and admire the Art Club display, before partaking of some delicious cakes and refreshment in the Village Hall. Visitors came from as far away as Leicestershire, Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire.

Before the event those kind enough to open their gardens were frantically weeding, deadheading and planting to ensure their gardens were all ready for the day. Even the sun shined warmly all afternoon and several visitors stated that it was one of the best village open gardens they’d been to.

Everyone’s fantastic effort raised over £800, which will help pay for the upkeep of our beautiful church here in Glinton. Our special thanks must go to Veronica Smith who had the idea and made it happen.

Such was the success and interest shown in the Glinton Open Gardens day, that consideration will be made to do it alternative years with different or increased numbers of gardens open to the public.
