Our Open Gardens event this year was a huge success. Thank you to all our visitors and to everyone who opened their gardens or helped with other many other activities to make it such a great afternoon (and thank you to the weather too!)
We had nearly 600 visitors and raised around £5,500 on the day, which will all be donated and distributed to our to our nominated charities.
Everyone reported a very enjoyable afternoon, there was something for everyone and the feedback and comments we have received from our visitors have been extremely complimentary.
Many people bought raffle tickets and the winners have all received their prizes. The list of winners has been displayed on the village notice board but you can also download a list of winners here. Congratulations to everyone with a winning ticket.
Our Open gardens event only runs every two years so the next one should be in 2020. We hope to make that another great event for Willoughby.
Glad it was such a successful event with fantastic weather. It was great to see that there were so many contributions from new people this year. I am sure that it will continue equally well in the future and am really glad to have been able to make my contribution in the past.
