Open Day for National Garden Scheme (Yellow Book)
We held our last opening of the year on 16 September. The weather was fine, the people came, the cakes sold out twice, the ice cream sold out... We raised £1,240 for various cancer charities and £340 for Motor Neurone Disease. And we showed off our garden.
At the end of the day one visitor said to us, 'Thank you. It's like a fairytale for the kids' and although this sounds really corny when written down, we felt our hard work was all worthwhile.
