The Heacham hosts to this year's summer fundraising event on behalf of Norfolk Wildlife could not have been more blessed with wonderful weather had they prayed for it.  Rob and Gel were delighted to welcome friends of Norfolk Wildlife to their lovely garden and they invited HOL along for a peek.

It was a quintessentially English afternoon garden party complete with tea and cake along with bowls (or is it boules?), stalls selling raffle tickets, barbecue tickets, books, cakes, icecreams and plants.  There was also a stall offering games and quizzes which were related to questions about the hosts' garden.  Not being a gardener, or a horticulturalist in any way, I found the quiz beyond me but I am sure the judges enjoyed my tongue in cheek answers!!

Everyone appeared to enjoy a relaxing afternoon in the garden and raised more than 400 for this worthwhile cause to boot.  I hope you enjoy the photos of this event on these pages.

Established in 1926, the Norfolk Wildlife Trust is the oldest of a nationwide network of 47 such trusts.  Each trust works to protect our wildlife and improve wild habitats.  The Trust cares for more than 50 nature reserves plus other protected locations around the UK both inland and coastline and is a strong influence over many Norfolk areas of outstanding natural beauty.
