Our tiny Suffolk village – apparently in the middle of nowhere but actually only a short distance from Ipswich – opened its gardens again for the first time in four years over the weekend of 22nd – 23rd June 2019.
As well as a range of very different gardens to visit, there were some exciting displays and other events to keep the whole family happy. Flowton’s delightful 13th century church also hosted a colourful Flower Festival on the theme of Nursery Rhymes which was extremely popular with the church providing some welcome coolness from the sun. The local history exhibition, also in the church, was a real draw for those who used to live in the area.
Proceeds go to help maintain St Mary’s Church, Flowton, and to FIND (Families in Need), our local Ipswich food and furniture bank which provides crucial support to many local families and individuals in need.
We were lucky with the weather on the weekend compared to previous years and welcomed over 500 paying visitors to our village, selling almost 350 lunches and cream teas as well as raising money with plant sales.
