South Walsham Open Gardens Day, Norfolk Broads - Sunday 4 August

Seventeen gardens in South Walsham in the Norfolk Broads have clubbed together for an open gardens day on Sunday 4 August in aid of the village defibrillator appeal, which has been inspired by local resident Michael Cooper.

The open gardens day runs from 11am to 5pm and costs £5 for adults, children free. Visitors should head for the Village Hall on School Road, opposite the entrance to Fairhaven Woodland and Water Garden, to pay, pick up a map of the open gardens and park their car.

Fairhaven Woodland and Water Garden is offering a cream tea at £4 on the day, with 50% of proceeds going to the defibrillator appeal and will also be staging a plant sale with a donation to the appeal. Fairhaven's sensory garden is included in the trail, but normal entry charges will apply for the rest of the garden and the open-air Summer Music concert in the Glade, from Norwich band The He Hews (2pm to 4pm).

Fairhaven Woodland and Water Garden t.01603 270449, www.fairhavengarden.co.uk, is nine miles east of Norwich, signposted off the A47 at B1140 junction.
