About 15 private gardens including one or two allotments were open for the first time in many years in one of the county's most beautiful villages.

Money raised from Cley-next-the-Sea's open gardens will go to the Cley Harbour community-based project dedicated to the restoration and maintenance of the quay and harbour, and Cley church flower fund.

One of the organisers Mel Kemp said: "We must have had about 800 visitors over the two days so it was very successful."

Kaye Read, another organiser, added: "Some friends and I thought it would be fun to organise open gardens to raise funds for the community.

"The gardens came in all shapes, sizes and styles, guaranteeing something of interest for everyone."

The event ran on Saturday, June 15 and Sunday, June 16, from 12pm to 4pm on both days.
