Huge success for Hook Open Gardens 2015

We had 250 paying visitors to our 11 open gardens and St. Mary’s Church event last Sunday they all left very happy with bags of plants and home baking.

Visitors came from all over Yorkshire and the weather didn’t disappoint us what a beautiful summers day we had.

We raised a magnificent sum of £1000 which will be shared equally between

Hook in Bloom and Hook Gardening Club.

Many Thanks  to villagers, volunteers and visitors, local and national businesses for their support.

A few photos from our event….
