Rain fails to dampen day

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

RAINY weather marked the last open day of the year at the Dean­ery Gar­dens in the grounds of Peter­bor­ough Cathe­dral.

It put off a few vis­i­tors, but the clouds failed to dampen the day for those who did at­tend the event on Satur­day.

Re­fresh­ments, cakes and chil­dren’s games were on of­fer and green­fin­gered vis­i­tors walked around to ad­mire the flora and fauna in the grounds.

The gar­dens are not nor­mally open to the pub­lic, but peo­ple are ad­mit­ted on se­lect days dur­ing the spring.

Canon Richard Cat­tle said af­ter three suc­cess­ful events, he was hop­ing the sea­son would fin­ish on a high note.

He said: “It was quite wet but those who did make it en­joyed a tremen­dously good time.

“It is great ex­pe­ri­ence for peo­ple to see a part of the city that is not gen­er­ally seen.

“Of the four events we’ve held so far this sum­mer, two of them had re­ally fan­tas­tic weather, so it was a great shame that this week­end was a pretty wet one.”
