My friend Peter Clegg has been working very hard to promote this year's open houses and gardens weekend, coming up. We had a "briefing" yesterday afternoon. All very organised.
More than half a dozen local properties can be visited next weekend, a good many more than last year. It remains to be seen whether we attract more members of the public - or whether the same number will be spread more thinly, so we shall be twiddling our thumbs for long periods.
