AN open garden event attracted hundreds of pounds for charity.

The event was held at the home of James and Liz Wherry in Stamford Road, Market Deeping, and attracted more than 200 people.

Bourne Preservation Trust raised about £700 through refreshments and a tombola and the Lincolnshire Churches Trust raised £600 through entry to the event.

The four-acre garden, which has the River Welland running through it, provided a perfect setting for the vintage cars provided by the Alvis Club and the 2049 Club.

Chairman of Bourne Preservation Society Jack Slater of Beech Avenue, Bourne, said: “It went very well. There was beautiful weather and we had a good turn out.

“I would like to thank James and Liz for the use of their garden and Tesco for providing most of the products we sold.”

A plant stall was provided by Tim Rassel from Castle Bytham Garden Centre and raised a further £50.

Homeowner James Wherry said: “It was a lovely day. We had about 25 classic cars including Alvis’, Frazer Nash, MG, Rover, Jaguar and Citroen.”
