CONSTANT rain did not dampen the spirits of the hundreds of visitors to the open garden event at Christ Church.

The Church held a summer fair to celebrate the completion of its community garden which was officially opened by the Archdeacon of the East Riding, David Butterfield, with a tree-planting ceremony on Saturday morning.

An afternoon of fun followed, with games, craft stalls and refreshments being just some of the attractions on offer.

Andy Jefferson of Christ Church said that the event had been a huge success.

“Obviously it rained all day, but it didn’t dampen our spirits at all - there were hundreds of people there and everything went ahead despite the rain,” he said.

“It was really good, everybody was enthusiastic, everybody enjoyed it and all the stall holders want to do it again so we are planning to hold another open garden event next year.”

The event showcased the community garden at Christ Church and marked the culmination of five years’ of hard work by various volunteers to transform a derelict piece of land into a beautiful garden for all to enjoy.

Andy said: “Visitors to the garden were very impressed, through the rain you could still see and appreciate the development and progress that has been made.”
