Families flocked to Bleasdale Tower over the weekend for the annual open garden event

Sun-seekers basked in the warm weather and had bowls of fun at Bleasdale Tower for the annual open gardens event.

Visitors flocked to the two-day event and basked in the sunshine while enjoying the numerous activities from guided walks to vintage car and tractor exhibits.

Organisers were able to make the most of the Mediterranean-like weather, pulling out the barbecue to serve up some good local fare.

Other attractions included the Guardian Concert Band and Bleasdale School featured their own exhibition among local history displays, and stalls for plants and bric-a-brac.

The North West Air Ambulance was also represented at the event.

One of the organisers Robert Gardener said: “It was a fantastic weekend. We had over 450 people come to visit the gardens and the good weather really helped.

“There was lots going on but the gardens themselves are the main attraction with them only being open for these two days of the year.”

All proceeds from the event go to Bleasdale Primary School, St Eadmer’s Church and Bleasdale Parish Hall.
