On Sunday 31st May, seven Sulgrave gardens were open to the public in aid of charity, under the National Gardens Scheme. Nationally, this scheme raises more than £2.5 million each year for nursing, caring and gardening charities and more than £25 million has been donated in the last 15 years. The gardens open to visitors were: Church Cottage, Eagle House, Ferns, Rectory Farm, Sulgrave Manor, The Cottage and Threeways.

Despite a weather forecast of strong winds and heavy rain the afternoon remained predominantly dry with a moderate breeze. As can be seen from the above picture, visitors were not deterred by the forecast and were rewarded by enjoying seven different styles of garden (and tea with a variety of delicious home made cakes).
