A selection of comments received by villagers from our visitors...

"Lavenham is known as the gem of Suffolk but it should really be Chelsworth"


“We’ve been to dozens of similar events over the years but this one is the best I’ve ever been to – looking forward to next years”


“From the warm welcome in the car park, which continued throughout the day to the leaving “hope you had a good time – see you next year” - thank you all for a wonderful day”


“Looking forward to the 50th anniversary of this wonderful event, which will make it 3 years in a row for us”


"We came with friends to the Chelsworth open garden event yesterday and absolutely loved our visit - thanks to you and all involved for being so generous in opening your wonderful gardens and for all the hard work that goes into organising and creating such a special day."


"Just wanted to say thank you for yesterday. I'm so pleased for you that the weather improved as the day went on."


"There was something very special at your Open Garden event yesterday. Special and very difficult to absorb the beauty of it all......We really don't know where to begin, but perhaps to start with the magnificence of the gardens themselves would be appropriate, an unbelievable effort from all the residents to achieve so much against the downpours, an immense spectacle of beauty."
