This year’s Secret gardens was a major success, helped by a beautiful day of sunshine which brought out the crowds in their thousands. Ticket sales were up by 10% on last year and over 3,000 visitors saw about 20 gardens. Our refreshments, Raffle and Plant Stall (Friends of the Arno) also make record returns, along with the children’s entertainments run by the Woodcraft Folk. A major departure was the Makers’ Market in the village centre, organised by Kate of Green’s with about 18 street food stalls and craft offerings – which proved to be very popular. The accounts are still being added up but all the indications are for very a healthy profit-share for the Society and our partner charities. More details to follow.
