The third Helpston Open Gardens took place on Sunday 12th June - as part of the Helpston Village Weekend - and once again the gardeners of Helpston exceeded all expectations. Just under 300 people visited the gardens - helping to raise a fabulous £1,541 to be shared between the Helpston New Village Hall Fund and St Botolph's Church.
Ten gardens took part, they were all very different but all very beautiful. The hard work and commitment shown by the owners of the gardens was clear to see when visiting them and judging from the visitors comments this dedication by the owners was greatly appreciated. So, an enormous thank you to Claire & David Spooner, Syd & Linda Smith, Kate & Roy Hinchliff, Gavin & Jackie Sugden, Rachel, Dom & David Brownlow, Jan & Jim Hardy, Carol & Mike Fisher, Carolyn & Peter Browse and Ann & Colin Bell.
Helpstons next Open Gardens wont be until June 2018, so plenty of time for you to tidy up your garden!! If you live in Helpston and are interested then please contact Tammy Tushingham on 07734 544578. Many thanks to Sue Young for providing the superb photographs!
Happy Gardening! Tammy
