An Elm woman is holding an open garden to raise funds for Parkinson’s Uk and the Alzheimer’s Society.

Diana Bullard will be opening up her well-tended gardens at Elm House on Saturday, from 2-5pm to visitors in exchange for donations to these causes.

Her daughter-in-law Rebecca said: “Elm House has a fantastic garden, which has been looked after by the same family for well over a century. My late father-in-law, Denys Bullard, was a local farmer and MP who was passionate about all kinds of plants.

“My young children love the place and have a strong connection with the land, and my mother in law, is an amazing woman, who even in her 70s still looks after the farm along with her farm manager Neil Buttress.

“Both farm and garden provide really interesting insights into the ways in which Fenland farms have both changed and stayed the same over the last hundred years.

Visitors will find a walled garden, an arboretum, a wild meadow, teas and a plant stall. Entry costs £4 for adults and entry is free for children.
