The Bishop of Ely is to host a ‘gardening extravaganza’ in aid of the NSPCC.

The Rt Rev Stephen Conway will welcome guests into a marquee in the grounds of his own garden on June 27, from 2pm, where a panel of experts will answer gardening questions.

A cream tea will be served and there will be two floral display demonstrations.

Later in the evening, from 6 to 7.45pm, there will be a choral event at the same venue, with the Isle Singers performing easy listening music. There will be refreshments and a hamper raffle.

Tickets, from £10, are available from Burrows Bookshop, in High Street Passage, Ely, from Lesley, on 01353 659986, or Wendy, on 01353 664752.
