Great Weather - Great Gardens

This year’s Open Gardens event, held in aid of the Church in Denton on Sunday 23rd June, was heralded as a great success by everybody who attended, The excellent weather helped, but it was the 14 gardens on display and their owners that were the real stars. And a wonderful set of Scarecrows was also on view.

A very nice guide to the gardens with a useful map showing their locations was available from the Village Hall where refreshments were served.

As several owners commented, the event provided them with a useful excuse to tidy up their properties but the results made it all worthwhile. A number of very productive vegetable plots were on view but it was the gorgeous flower displays that really caught the eye. The prize for the best Scarecrow, representing “Miss Havisham” it seems, went to Sally Barber.

Over £1,300 was raised fot the Church. Well done everybody involved.
