Two Yatton organisations teamed up to host a garden trail through a number of open gardens in the village.

Fourteen gardens were open to the public in order to raise money for the Children’s Hospice South West 25th Anniversary Appeal, which will raise money to care for children with life-limiting illnesses.

Yatton Horticultural Society and Congresbury Wildlife Action Group organised the event.

The gardens on display included small formal gardens, as well as one with a model village and railway.

A spokesman for the event said: “Despite the rain which set in the trail was well attended and raised £1,500.”
