OPEN GARDENS: The Village Show Society is having an Open Gardens Day on July 15 and the Community Plot will be open to visitors from 10.30am. The society is hoping for plenty of visitors who will no doubt also be interested in the garden plots and maybe in becoming plotters themselves. At 2pm Sue Payne at Martinlands will be giving a demonstration and talk about her collection of Hemerocallis and from 3pm cream teas will be served at The Gate House. Admission to all three events is free with a charge for refreshments only. Hope to see you then.
