What a fantastic time: we had at the Westfield Village Fete! The perfect weather brought everyone out to enjoy all sorts of stalls, food and drink and arena entertainment. Huge congratulations must go to Annie and helpers for such an amazing afternoon. Sadly, the Westfield Hospice Open Gardens day was not so lucky with the weather. The event had to be cancelled due to the dreadful conditions on the day, which was very disappointing for the hard-working garden owners and visitors alike.
