Brundall Open Gardens to benefit local churches

Gardens in Brundall will be looking their best during the weekend of June 10 and 11 as Yare Valley Churches stage their biggest ever Open Gardens event.

The route takes in Brundall Rectory at 73 The Street and will be open from 10am until 4pm on the Saturday, and from 1pm until 4pm on the Sunday. The event will include homemade refreshments in St Laurence's churchyard with light lunches on Saturday, a taxi service between the gardens, a themed raffle and plant stall, bouncy castle and more stalls in Brundall churchyard on the Saturday.
Revd. Peter Leech, Rector of Yare Valley Churches, will be opening his own garden which has undergone impressive changes recently. Peter insists it’s still very much a case of ‘works in progress.’ The poet and hymn writer Dorothy Gurney wrote “One is nearer God’s heart in a garden than anywhere in the world.”  The Revd. Leech is offering an invitation for garden lovers and others to relish this peaceful experience many times over.
Brundall has a close association with gardens going back to 1881 when Dr Michael Beverley purchased 76 acres of land and created Brundall Gardens. They were known as ‘The Switzerland of Norfolk’ and were very popular during Victorian times and the first half of the 20th century.
Maps showing the location of all the gardens are available from the Rectory. The cost is £1.00 before the weekend and £1.50 on the day. All proceeds from the event will go to Yare Valley Churches.
