Bishop of Norwich Gets Garden Visits Underway.

The launch of the 2015 National Gardens Scheme Yellow Booklet for Norfolk is a clear sign that spring is on its way for garden visitors. The Booklet, a comprehensive guide essential for garden lovers to explore hidden gardens across the County, includes information and opening times on 66 gardens. Of these, 6 are opening their gates for the first time for the NGS, and 10 gardens are making a welcome return after a short break.

The Bishop of Norwich, the Rt. Rev. Graham James, and Mrs Julie James whose own garden is open on Sunday 12 th July, hosted the launch on the 18 th February at Bishop s House Norwich.

Bishop Graham and Julie who have supported the NGS for many years said We are glad to open our garden for many charities each summer The NGS day brings many enthusiastic gardeners every year and a lot of people with a great knowledge of gardens. The NGS has also raised a lot of money for good purposes here and in many other Norfolk gardens. We are glad to host the launch of this year s programme for such an enterprising organisation. .

Fiona Black (County Organiser NGS), Bishop of Norwich Rt Rev Graham Jenkins launching booklet at Bishop s House County organiser Fiona Black thanked the hard working volunteers and garden owners for helping to raise an incredible 86,000 last year, reminding them that approximately 80p in each 1 raised at the garden gate goes to the NGS beneficiary charities which include Macmillan Cancer, Marie Curie Cancer Care and Hospices UK. She also thanked Savills for their kind generosity in sponsoring the booklet for the past five years, and the many advertisers who have made it possible to produce not only a free guide but also one of such high quality.
