July 2016 saw the inaugural Open Gardens held within Walton. The day was a
great success, with people flooding the village right from the 11 am start until the
4pm finish. There were stalls at most gardens selling various new and second hand
items, a bustling café running in the village hall, raffles, tombolas and an ice cream
van, taking full advantage of the glorious sunny weather.

Most gardens saw visitor numbers almost reaching 500, and the sum for the day was
in excess of £5000. The day couldn’t have gone ahead without the help of a number
of different groups, and many, many local people. So a big thanks to them, but more
importantly a big thanks to YOU, the people who walked around the 12 lovely
gardens on that day and made it such a success.
