There will be a splash of colour in Wreningham in mid June when village gardens open their gates to visitors following a colour run at the village school, to make up a fun-packed community weekend. 

The open gardens, ranging from small cottage plots to larger landscaped gardens and woodlands, will be open to visitors on Sunday, June 16, Fathers’ Day, from 10am until 4pm.

The event will be raising funds for the historic All Saints Church in the village.

One of the organisers, Karen Nunn, said: “Our Open Gardens event is being organised by a group of volunteers and, as well as raising funds for good causes in the village, we hope that it will also bring the community together in a celebration of summer.

“In addition to the Open Gardens we are planning a range of other attractions for visitors, including lots of dads we hope. These will includes games such as welly throwing, bug hunting and giant Jenga for children and their dads in each garden and a gnome hunt. There will also be art displays and sales from talented artists within the village and a plant sale at the church.

“For those who work up an appetite while wandering around we will have tea and cakes at the church, a South African barbecue in one garden and light lunches, cakes and a bar at the village hall.”

Entry is £5 per person with accompanied under 12s free of charge.  Please note that this is a cash only event.

To start the community weekend in the village, the Friends of Wreningham School will be holding a fete, and colour run on the village playing field on Saturday June 15.
