Residents passionate about their gardens have raised thousands of pounds for charity by opening theirs up to the public.

Scorching sunshine shone over Ely as six gardens in the city took part in the National Gardens Scheme (NGS) open day on Sunday.

The gardens at Bishop’s House were open, as were 50A, Prickwillow Road, and Rosewell House, also in Prickwillow Road.

Numbers 12 and 26, Chapel Street, are took part, as did The Black Hostelry.

Pam Bullivant, who owns Rosewell House, said: “We had a marvellous day. The turnout was fantastic and we managed to raise £2,600 for our charities.

“We’d like to thank everyone who helped and supported our open gardens.”

Liz Hunter, who lives at 50A, Prickwillow Road, added: “I think it was one of the best open garden event in Ely we’ve ever had. The weather certainly helped - it was gorgeous.”
