Beautiful cottage gardens at Hutton Buscel will be open to the public on Sunday June 16 to raise funds to run the 900 year-old parish church of St Matthew’s.
Church warden, Neil Gardner, said it was now costing £40,000 a year to finance the church. However one improvement is underway - to provide the historic pews with runner-cushions to aid the comfort of the congregation. The open afternoon of gardens in the Domesday Book village, will also include plant sales, tombola, stalls, and craft demonstrations.
In addition, leading Scarborough artist, Don Micklethwaite will be staging an exhibition of his work. The popular event has been running for a number of years and attracts many visitors from the surrounding areas and beyond.
