This may look like a photo of people enjoying a garden party, but in fact it shows a tiny part of a garden being opened to the public for charity on Sunday.
Maureen Keating is holding an open day at 254 Ashurst Drive for the second time this summer in aid of St Francis Hospice.
The space is full of surprises, including a miniature railway and model village with its own pub.
Although the garden is only 30ft by 40ft, it has seven water features including a waterfall, log water feature and glass bottle installation and six seating areas.
Areas are dedicated to themes including the seaside, woodlands and Japan.

All proceeds will go towards Maureen’s target of £1,000 for St Francis Hospice, in Havering-atte-Bower.
She said: “I support them because I know the money raised will go to the right people.”
