A vineyard was among the attractions as the village of Congham hosted its second annual open gardens day on Sunday.

Five residents threw open their gates with one house sporting a living roof of low growing plants.

The event was held in aid of St Andrew’s Church and also featured a plant stall, a raffle and refreshments.

Margaret Hope, secretary of the parochial church council, pictured above with husband Ron in their garden, said: “It was nice to see so many people walking around the village.

“The church is the centre of the village and it was a community fund-raising event. Our current project is to raise money for the installation of a kitchen.

“We’re grateful to local businesses for donating all the prizes for the raffle.”
