●● A COU­PLE are open­ing their gar­den in aid of a na­tional char­ity scheme.

Ge­orgie and Peter Ever­son are open­ing their gar­den in Ker­ridge to the public for the third year to raise money for the Na­tional Gar­dens Scheme (NGS), which sees gar­dens around the coun­try open up for a va­ri­ety of char­i­ties.

The cou­ple will host two open­ing events and ask those in­ter­ested to con­tact them be­fore­hand to make ar­range­ments to visit. Ge­orgie said: “We are a hill­side gar­den and are hop­ing for good sun­sets as we en­joy a good view from here.

“We en­joy open­ing our gar­den be­cause it’s a good way of rais­ing money for the char­ity. We will have a flute quar­tet at the sec­ond event, so with live mu­sic and can­dle­light it should be a good evening.”

The gar­den is open from 6.30pm on Mon­day, Au­gust 17 and Thurs­day, Au­gust 27.

En­try costs £3 and there will be wine, tea, cof­fee and cakes for sale.
