The Colaton Raleigh Open Gardens event has seen much needed funds raised for the village church.

The event took place over two days, with visitors able to look round the gardens, buy plants and enjoy refreshments.

The total amount raised was £979 – slightly down on previous years, but a creditable result bearing in mind changeable weather conditions.

Alan Hulse, who helped organise the event, said: “Particularly given the weather, we had a lovely time, and lots of people said some very positive things about the effort people had taken to make their gardens look special.”
