Warm sunshine brought out the visitors in large numbers for Catcott’s unique annual Open Gardens day which combines magnificent gardens with superb vintage cars.
Fifteen gardens in the village were open to the public who were able to travel between them in a fleet of cars provided by Vintage Wheels.
The event was organised by the Catcott Village Association. All the money raised will be used to put on events in the village, subsidise the Over 60’s lunch, provide the floral planters around the village and support groups and organisations in Catcott. A proportion of the ticket price will be donated to charities selected by Gerry Wheeler of Vintage Wheels.
The cars were kept busy all afternoon.
Refreshments were on sale at the Village Hall, Edington during the afternoon and plants were on sale from stalls in the car park.
A number of Triumph Stags from the Somerset and Dorset Stag Owners Club were on display at the Village Hall.
This year visitors were unable to climb the tower at St Peter’s Church. The church remained closed while repair work to the tower and roof continued.
