Ditchingham and Broome Open Gardens and Scarecrow Festival

Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th May 2019 ~ 11am – 4pm

We’re up and running! We already have some friends and neighbours from our two villages who are keen to take part, but we need more of you!

Let’s join together to build on the terrific success of our first festival and make our second even better.

We’ve listened to our gardeners and moved the date to late spring. We’ve already arranged catering on both days at the start point Ditchingham Village Hall. All profits from the sale of the guide will be split equally between St Mary’s and St Michael’s churches. We’re hoping to arrange other attractions – please look out for April’s Parishioner

So whether you want to open your garden or create a scarecrow please contact either of the two Steves on 01986 895530 (Steve Harris) or 01508 518144 (Steve Simmonds).

Let’s put our village son the map again, have some fun and that, once again our community spirit is alive and well!
