For the gardening enthusiast there are natural wooded areas surrounding the village with its selection of kitchen gardens, gravel gardens and tropical gardens that are host to a variety of plants including alpines, herbaceous, perennials, roses, climbers and shrubs.

Tickets are just £5 for adults for entry to all of the gardens, while children can join in for free.

There will also be a book sale, plant sales, a tombola and the access to one of the two village churches. Refreshments, including home made teas, will be available at the Limes Cottage.

All money raised will go to support the cancer and palliative care beneficiaries of the National Gardens Scheme.
