Garden party is a blooming success

A charity garden party was in full bloom at Warley House Gardens, Warley, Halifax, where visitors enjoyed the good weather.

The event, organised by the Calderdale circuit of Methodist Churches, saw a variety of stalls and games along with paninis, tea and a barbecue so nobody went hungry.

Other attractions included a ducking stall, donkey rides and a giant slide.

Five hundred adults came through the gates along with hundreds of children who got to view the gardens and attractions on show.

The charity day raised £4,600 and will be split between seven charities - five which the church works closely with along with the Overgate Hospice and the Forget Me Not Children Hospice.

Joint secretary and one of the organisers Paul Hinton said: “All the fun of the fair was had by everybody. It was a bit breezy at times but it was a perfect day and everybody seemed to have a good time.”
