An open garden afternoon will be held at several properties in Scremby next week.

The event, on Sunday, June 30 from noon onwards, will raise funds for the restoration of the central stained glass window (pictured) in the village’s Georgian church.

From 2pm to 5pm at Cob Cottage, the old rectory and Scremby Manor, the gardens will be open to the public.

There will also be a collection of classic cars to view at Bassingham House.

A selection of delicious home-made teas will also be available, with a combined admission of £3.50 and children under 16 admitted free.

Beautifully situated on the edge of the Wolds’ area of outstanding natural beauty, the church has a commanding view of the surrounding countryside.

There has been a church on the site since Domesday but the existing building was completed in 1733.

Three very different gardens are ‘open’ for the afternoon and it promises to be an afternoon that has something for everyone. Visitors can find the gardens off the A158, between Gunby and the Partney pumps roundabout.
