Haddenham and District Age Concern (HADAC) reports that seven hard working Haddenham residents opened their beautifully colourful gardens to the public on a fine, sunny Sunday afternoon in June, when visitors enjoyed a variety of different designs and maturity of the gardens.
This was HADAC's second Open Gardens Event, and, through ticket, plant and refreshment sales, the local charity raised over £800 towards its funds.
Garden owners and volunteers are thanked again for their hard work in making this occasion a great success.
