Beginning with the May Fair for Ottery Parish Church tomorrow, there are several days-worth of outdoor fundraisers utilising the gardens at the country estate.
This Tuesday there is a coffee morning for the National Trust, and afternoon tea to raise money for Hospiscare, and on Wednesday morning the Churches Together in Ottery are having a Bible Society event.
On Wednesday afternoon there is ‘Piggy Ascot’, with electronic pig racing and a performance by bluegrass group Dixiegrass to raise money for Ottery Carnival and FORCE.
Thursday sees week close with a jazz picnic for Ottery and District Help scheme.

Cadhay’s owner Rupert Thistlewayte has been opening Cadhay’s normally private doors since he inherited the property eight years ago, and sees it as a great opportunity to use it for the good of the community.
The gardens are open every Friday from May until September, and this year they are offering season tickets for �10 to encourage locals to visit throughout the opening season.
