Open Garden weekend
Saturday 12th-Sunday 13th July

Organisation is in full swing for what should be a good weekend for all the family.
For those of you interested in plants and flowers, there will be many of the villages beautiful gardens open to stroll around and take inspiration from. Also, we hope others will be joining in the horticultural display by putting hanging baskets, window boxes etc. on show.
For the children, there will be trails and quizzes, as well as places in the village for fun and games.
There will be a well known ice cream stall, plus ploughman's lunches, cream teas and cake stalls. Plants will be on sale - no excuse for not entering your garden next year!
There will be a book stall (donations kindly accepted), psychic healing, and floral displays in the Church.
The starting point for your floral and fragrant tour of Northwold will be the Village Hall, where there will be car parking and toilets.
All proceeds from the weekend will be going towards the Village Hall roof refurbishment fund. Please support this weekend as much as you can, and pray for good weather!
