Green-fingered fund-raisers are urging people to save a date in June as once again beautiful gardens across Thetford will open their gates in aid of a local charity.

The popular Thetford Open Gardens event will take place on Sunday, June 25 and will once again see gardens of all shapes and sizes showcased in aid of a good cause.

Last year’s event attracted hundreds of visitors and raised more than £11,000 for St Nicholas Hospice Care, Bury St Edmunds, which will also benefit from money raised at this year’s open gardens.

Rachel Woods, one of the organisers said: “This will be Thetford Open Gardens 11th year and as always it will be a challenge, especially as we would like to raise £11,000 again this year.”

Admission is by programme available from Thetford Garden Centre and Thetford’s Great Information Centre.
