An annual event which sees beautiful gardens across Thetford opened up to the public is set to make its return. 

Thetford Open Gardens in its usual form was cancelled last year amid the coronavirus pandemic, and replaced by virtual activities and fundraising.

But the devoted team of organisers are back and have been busy organising for a special double event, to be held on June 6 and June 27. 

Funds are once again being raised for St Nicholas Hospice Care, which provides end-of-life support for people in west Suffolk and Thetford.

Due to Covid restrictions, ticket availability for June 6 is limited and no more than 30 people will be allowed in a single garden at any one time.
