MEMBERS of the Friends of Holy Trinity Church, Meldreth, will be praying the weather is bright and beautiful for the annual open gardens event on Sunday, April 18.

During the afternoon, from 1.30 to 5.30, a number of Meldreth gardens will be open to visitors.

These will include flower gardens, vegetable gardens, and allotments, so there will be plenty of variety for visitors and garden lovers.

Stephen Marshall, for the Friends of Holy Trinity, said: "Meldreth Spring Gardens is a popular annual event, with the addition this year of a number of vegetable gardens."

There will also be plenty going on at the church.

"As in previous years, visitors can enjoy tea and homemade cakes, and this year have a chance to win a garden design consultation by The Garden Design Centre at Scotsdales, and also visit art exhibitions by Meldreth artists Lizanne van Essen and Ros Ridley.

In addition, the Meldreth Vegetable Club will have a stand to give visitors ideas for growing their own.

Entry programmes can be bought at the church and at the gardens - which will be signposted.

The cost is £4 for adults and 50p for children, to include entry to Topcliffe Mill.

All proceeds will go to the upkeep of the church.
