VILLAGERS in Piddlehinton will be opening up their gardens to the public next month.

The community is holding an Open Gardens event on Saturday, June 14 and Sunday, June 15 from 11am to 5pm.

Gardens of all sizes including riverside gardens, farmhouse gardens, cottage gardens and tiny gardens will be on show and the Millennium Green will also be open for visitors to enjoy.

On the Sunday, to celebrate Father’s Day, there will also be a sport themed floral display in the village church – which will be open both days. Children’s scarecrow activities are planned and there will also be plant and preserve stalls.

There will be coffees, lunches, take-away picnics and afternoon teas available from the village hall.

Tickets to visit the gardens cost £5 for adults, to cover both days, with under-16s going free.

Profits from the weekend will go to Julia’s House children’s hospice, the village church, village hall and the Millennium Green.
