The Thornbury and District Committee of Cancer Research UK would like to thank all those involved in organising and attending the Alveston Open Gardens day on 19th July this year. It was the best Open Gardens event in our history with over 200 visitors looking around 9 local gardens in brilliant sunshine. This event also raised a staggering £2,000 for the charity so a big thank-you goes to everyone who attended, the brave people who opened up their beautiful gardens for others to enjoy, and also the volunteers who selflessly gave up their time to look after the visitors.
