Scary creatures spotted at garden safari open day
It was not quite the wilds of Africa, but there were some scary creatures spotted during a safari in Mylor.
The creatures in question during the garden safari were scarecrows made by local youngsters.
The competition took place on the playing field while the gardens were open nearby.
The event was organised by the Tremayne Hall committee and Mylor Gardening Club.
Ten residents' gardens were open along Penoweth and Church Road for visitors to enjoy. Last year was the first safari with gardens on the other side of the river open.
Val Jeans-Jakobsson, newly elected chairman of the Tremayne Hall Committee, said it was a fantastic day.
"It is a good excuse to be nosy and people enjoy looking at other people's gardens. People doing the gardens worked so hard and went to a huge amount of trouble to get them looking really nice."
Entry was by programme and this raised £700 to be split between the hall and the Ord Statter Pavilion, where the Gardening Club meet.
Around 200 were involved either as organisers, visitors to the gardens or taking part in the scarecrow competition.
Three out of the 12 entries were picked as winners by Mrs Jeans-Jakobsson and Christopher Perkins, former chairman of the committee and the children will receive certificates. During the afternoon photos from the last year and thus year were on display on a big screen in the Ord Statter. Pictures are also on the website at www.tremaynehall.org
