Eye-catching flower pot men and a giant flower pot have blossomed in Fornham All Saints as residents prepare for the village's open gardens event.

Visitors will be able to explore 19 emerald havens on Sunday, July 1 from 11am to 5pm with proceeds benefitting the village hall, community centre and church.

The event also features more than 20 classic cars, a hamper raffle as well as a water and wine stall and children's competition to find animal placards.

Flower pot men, designed by Gary Clark-Ward, will also be on display.

The event launched in 2008 and is held every other year by the fund-raising committee for Fornham All Saints.

Member Mary Purnell said there are a variety of 'pretty' gardens and one includes the chance to see model trains.

There is parking at the community centre, where visitors must buy a programme with a map of the gardens. Entry is £3 per adult and children are free.
