Visitors enjoyed the fresh fruit and vegetables grown by tenants, as well as the scarecrows constructed for the annual scarecrow competition.

Lily Brownjohn, Secretary of the Association, said: “It was an absolutely brilliant day and the atmosphere was lovely.

“People were really impressed with the idyllic setting.”

Other attractions on the day included a bee-keeping demonstration, music by Kenilworth folk group Romany Pie, and a stand selling homemade ice cream which proved very popular due to the excellent weather.

The Mayor of Kenilworth, Cllr Michael Coker, was present at the open day, and a donation from funds raised at the event will be made to his charity, Diabetes Research.
