The Gardens Open Day was once again very successful, not only monetarily but by bringing a good feel factor to the village. There were well over 250 visitors to the event. I am so pleased that many of you have told me you had a great day. The total raised after expenses is £1,923. This is a new record (Just!) For photos see gallery
A big thank you to the garden owners who worked through “difficult” weather conditions to prepare their gardens for June 30th. As usual this event was very much a team effort and thanks must also go to those on the rosters, and the various stalls. A great deal of hard work went into preparing food, cakes and organising plants so again, thank you.
Christine has asked me to tell you that the price of the left over cakes was covered by a donation and they will be used at the Church Tea Party and also the Tendring Show Church tent. Nothing went to waste.
The money raised will eventually be used by the PCC for the work needed on the tower rainwater drainage. See project tab for details.
