Open gardens events were held in Clapton-in-Gordano and Clevedon at the weekend.

Hundreds of people attended the Clevedon event where they got to bask in the sunshine while wandering around a variety of gardens in the town.

Nationally-acclaimed and quirky gardens were opened to the public, with features including a banana tree and even a running stream proving to be highlights.

Jo Lea-Jones, Clevedon Pride chairman, said: “A big congratulations to everyone organising the event, especially Mike Bisacre who made this annual event so fun and interesting for everyone.”

And on Sunday afternoon it was Clapton-in-Gordano’s chance to enjoy the limelight.

The Avon Gardens Trust fundraiser saw people get the rare chance to explore the wonderful horticulture we all too often take for granted.

It took place at Little Naish in Naish Hill. Peter and Anne Hills were on hand to give people a tour.
