Ten village gardens are preparing for an open event this weekend.  

Gardens throughout the village of Great Ryburgh will welcome people on June 24 between 1pm to 5pm as part of an open gardens event organised by St Andrew's Church.

The event, running for the tenth year in a row - will see gardens with features including formal design, natural surroundings, a riverside refuge, and a classy courtyard go on display.

Visitors can meet the people who created the gardens and who now tend to them.

Anne McPrentis, the churchwarden, said: “Open gardens is an event we look forward to and we are always delighted to welcome back visitors who've been in the past.

“This year they will see the duck tube on one of the large garden ponds from which 16 mallard ducklings emerged on May 21 this year."

Tea and homemade cake will be available in several of the gardens.

Tickets for the events are £5, with children under 12 going free.

All proceeds will go towards the upkeep of the church.

Tickets will be available from St Andrew's and the village hall.
