This year’s Lady Bay Open Gardens was a resounding success with over 1,100 paying adults, plus hundreds of children attending the two-day event.
A total of 18 gardens of all shapes and sizes took part, with families enjoying the hospitality and entertainment.
A massive £7,700 was raised with all profits donated to the Lady Bay Community Fund and various charities nominated by garden owners.
Dates for next year have been confirmed as 4th and 5th July 2020.
The grand opening on Saturday was well attended. Guests included BBC Radio Nottingham’s garden expert Stuart Dixon and mayoress Christine Jeffreys, as well as local councillors Sue and Richard Mallender.
The chair of the open gardens committee, Tony Papkiewicz, said: “I’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone involved in making this year’s Lady Bay Open Gardens an enormous success and thanks to all our visitors too.
