Yoxwood Open Gardens returns this weekend with theme of ‘butterflies’
Nearly 20 gardens in a Suffolk village are expected to open to the public this weekend for a special charity fundraiser.
The Yoxford Open Gardens event returns on Sunday with the theme of “butterflies”.
Yoxwood committee member Pat Wallace said the community woodland would be taking part along with the allotments and around 18 private gardens. The gardens will be opened around the village from 11am-5pm.
At the Yoxwood there will be exhibitions and children making paper butterflies to hang from trees as well as entertainment and a raffle.
Tickets for the event cost £3 from the village hall with funds raised being split between three causes.

Previous events in the village have proved popular, raising hundreds of pounds for charity. Last year saw Richard Lark from Henham Bees and Trees give a talk on “save the bees” in the Yoxwood. A spokesman for the event said it had been a “very successful day”.
