A NEWBOURNE fundraiser will open her garden gates to a party with a golden era twist.
Judy Riggs, who has held a garden party annually for the last 20 years has invited all to the Newbourne village to rock and roll with a golden era tribute band.
Especially welcome are past and present villagers and any members of the Newbourne Young Farmers club of the 1960s.
Mrs Riggs said: "It is a lot of fun and the food is very good. It is very good value for money. It is a natural garden, it isn't formal in any way. I just pray for good weather."

To keep the church open in the small community of 200 people, at least £6,000 has to be raised each year.
