On the 2nd July 2022, eleven gardens took part in the Necton Open Gardens Day. There was an interesting variety of garden sizes and diversity such as: a wildlife friendly cottage garden; a spacious and calm oasis in the village; a garden of transience; an intriguing mix of wilderness and structural planting; a quart in a pint pot with a spot for a G&T; an extensive formal garden.

The event was well attended, with people travelling as far away as Cambridgeshire having seen the event publicised on Open Gardens – the UK National Directory | town and village Open Gardens events across the UK Which is run by a group of garden enthusiasts!

All proceeds from the event went to the NECTON AREA TRUST. Teas, coffee and cakes were available from a number of gardens taking part and the overall feedback from the visitors was very positive. The weather was also very good and it is likely that this will become a regular event.
