There was much more to see and enjoy than just a range of attractive gardens, large and small, at Sedgeford's 31st annual open gardens on Sunday.

Gardens were what the visitors had come to view but there were also lunches and teas, live jazz, an art exhibition, a family garden quiz and a display of model boats.

But gardens took the pride of place with everything from a farm garden and a manor garden to a cosy cottage garden.

"It was all organised by a team of volunteers," said St Mary's church warden Pam Goddard.

"We normally raise around £3,000. The money will go towards repairing the organ, currently in pieces, new lighting and replacing the wooden floor."

Around £28,000 is needed in all and although the church has not reached the target work has begun of the repairs.

"The wooden floor is rotten so we have had to go ahead with that work," said Mrs Goddard.
