A popular event will return next weekend as a diverse choice of gardens are showcased.

The annual Blundeston open gardens event will see numerous gardens open to the public in the village over the weekend of June 30 and July 1.

The local bowls club will also be open, weather and suitable footwear permitting, with visitors able to have a go at bowling under the supervision of a club member.

Tickets and route of participating gardens will be available from the village hall at Hall Lane in Blundeston. It costs £3 per person, with accompanied children free, and the entry fee is valid for both days as all funds are raised for Blundeston in Bloom.

Light refreshments will be available at the hall and around the village. There will also be an exhibition in the hall by the Art Club.

A spokesman said: 'With the Royal Wedding this year, we have taken the opportunity to use this as a village theme. So with the help of the Art Group, as you walk around you will see sentries, corgis, crowns and even the duck hut by the pond has had a makeover – and is now called Duckingham Palace.'

Blundeston has won a number of awards in the regional in bloom contest and this year they have entered the Anglia in Bloom competition once more.
