Open gardens will help community blossom
THREE villages are opening up their gardens to visitors.
More than 25 gardens in Sutton, Langley and Lyme Green will welcome guests to raise money towards community planting around the villages.
It’s been organised by the Three Villages Community Action Group.
One ticket – which costs £5 – will give guests access to the gardens between 11am until 4pm over the weekend of July 8 and 9.
Tea and cakes, ice creams and plants will be sold at several gardens, with proceeds also going towards environmental and community- minded projects.
Open gardens include Blakelow Farm; Meg Lane End in Higher Sutton; Dow Meadow House, the former walled garden at Langley Hall; Lyme Green Settlement.
The greenhouses and horticultural workshops at Rossendale Hall are accessed by guided visit only, at 11am on July 9.
