A BIG weekend was had by all when the Bicester Avenue Garden Centre held a special bank holiday event.
The Big Weekend saw a variety of activities including demonstrations on how to make hand-tied bouquets and basket arrangements, a barbecue, inflatable slide, surf simulator and a penalty shoot out.
The centre’s farm shop was offering free cheese, jam and chutney tastings and a chance to win a car for £1 with County Chevrolet.
The head of the Oxford Wicker Man was also on display.
Avenue manager, Daniel Cooper, said the event raised £2,000 for Garth Day Time Support, which helps people with learning disabilities.
He said: “We were pleased with the amount we raised and there was quite a lot of support from local people which was fantastic.”
A mega raffle held on the day raised £1,000 alone.
