Villagers will showcase their finest flowers, fruit and vegetables next weekend.

The inaugural Tickenham open gardens day will take place on Sunday from 11am-4pm.

Ten homes in Clevedon Road, Old Lane, Church Lane and Jacklands Bridge will open their doors to guests who will be able to see chickens, rabbits, water features and the national collection of Passiflora.

There will be light lunches, cream teas, refreshments, a programme and parking available at the village hall, in Clevedon Road, and plant sales at some of the gardens.

Money raised will go to charities Alive and Brown Rock Woodland Project.

Entry, priced £1-3.50 with under five's free, includes entry into all 10 gardens.

John Banks, open gardens chairman, said: "We are all very excited about this new venture for Tickenham.

"There are some wonderful gardens in the village and visitors can expect a real treat."

*The Times reported the event would be taking place on a Saturday in print, however this was an error and the event will be taking place across the village on Sunday.*
