Swannington, near Reepham, will host its biannial open gardens event ‘Swannington in Bloom’ on Saturday, June 30, with 10 gardens taking part.

There will also be classic cars displays at Swannington Common and Upgate Common - including a number of Triumph Stags - and a selection of Morgans at Swannington Manor, known as Norfolk’s ‘most romantic’ garden.

This year’s event is raising funds for the redevelopment of the village play area, where families can enjoy garden-themed arts and crafts and discover a selection of farm machinery old and new.

Laura Marfell-Williams, chair of this year’s organising committee, said: “This is the eighth edition of Swannington in Bloom and we have more gardens opening this time than ever before, still at just £5 per person. With the inclusion of a number of classic car displays and activities for children, we’re hoping this year will be our best yet.”

Gardens will be open from 10am–5pm, for more information visit www.swanningtoninbloom.org.
