Dersingham's annual open gardens and art trail is a bank holiday treat that first opened its garden gates and studio doors to visitors around the turn of the 21st century.

It is now well established and a constant stream of visitors toured the 21 colourful gardens and thirteen art studios where paintings in various media, pottery and glassware were on show.

St Nicholas church provided morning coffees, lunches and afternoon teas. Refreshments were also available at several of the garden stops.

"We usually get around 800 visitors," said Judy Collingham who, together with husband, David, organised the event.

"There's plenty of variety. Everything from large gardens like the Old Vicarage, to small cottage gardens. In the past we've raised up to £6,000 and we're hoping to make that much this year."

The proceeds will go towards church funds and to help finance the cost of fitting out a new village centre currently being built opposite the church.
