Next weekend will see the opening of ten colourful gardens normally hidden from the village, for the annual Open Gardens event in Wisbech St Mary.

Organiser Jayne Walpole said: “Fundraising this year is in support of the Cystic Fibrosis Trust. Last year we raised £1,670, can you help us beat it this year?”

The event provides something for everyone, from cute cottage gardens to large open landscapes, wildflower meadows.

Also on show will be a collection of over 300 cacti and succulents, on-line weather station, ponds and water features, chickens, fish, a private falconry collection with displays from 11am-12pm, and 2-3pm.

Taking place on June 26, the event is perfect for families who want to spend a Sunday enjoying the village gardens, a game of croquet and indulge in some homemade refreshments.

Visitors should look for the gardens displaying a large orange flower and start at any garden. Entry to all 10 gardens, including falconry collection is £4, with a free programme and map.

Gardens are located on High Road, Barton Road, Station Road, Bevis Lane, St Mary’s Close and off Churchfield Way. Sat Nav starting point PE13 4RY.
