Gardens in West Stockwith will be open to the public on Sunday July 15 from 11am to 4pm to raise funds for St Mary’s Church.
There will also be a number of Olympic-themed scarecrows around the village. Buy a ticket and get a map of the open gardens at the village hall (£3.50 for adults including a glass of wine; children free). Then visit the gardens, where there will also be refreshments (hot food, cream teas, and ice cream) and cakes, plants, bric a brac and books on sale.
There’s also a tombola and lucky dip, plus books for sale, including children’s titles, in St Mary’s Church where people are asked to leave a donation in the honesty box.
