Chastleton garden was transformed last Sunday when the village held its fete in our grounds with the primary aim of raising funds for repairs to the church roof.

After a week of appalling weather, the rain luckily stayed away for most of the day and we had a constant stream of visitors buying from the stalls, doing house and garden tours and generally enjoying the relaxed atmosphere, wonderful refreshments, games and entertainment.

Garden volunteers, Julie and Jane, kept busy manning the plant stall and doing tours of the garden
Seeing the stalls in the Forecourt, Best Garden and North Terrace reminded us of the nostalgic photos in our archives from earlier times when fetes and parties were held in the grounds.

Well done to all the organisers, stall holders, staff and volunteers who helped make the day so successful. Below is the ancient Chastleton church which benefits from the proceeds.
