thought I would share this event with you if anyone is in the area this weekend. I haven't been to this village one before but have had 4 enjoyable days at Whixley, Great Ouseburn, Marton cum grafton and Little Ouseburn near York over the past couple of years. The villages open typically 10-20 gardens and tend to be rasing funds for the village school church etc. Great day out and plenty of tips, photos and ideas to take away.
