GARDENS in a small Worcestershire village have opened to the public, and its residents have not held back in making it a spectacle.

The Gardens of Wichenford are eleven privately owned gardens in Wichenford which are opened to the public this weekend.

Across today and tomorrow (Sunday), residents will be showcasing their gardens for charity and have organised events to make each day worth the £7 entry fee.

Also, at Brook Court (garden number 9), the Barrels & Bells Clarinet Choir have been hired to play at 2pm and 3.15pm.

While visitors wander through the 11 garden route, they can also see a weekend-only art exhibition that has been put in place and a plant sale.

Wichenford Open Gardens began over 20 years ago and was initially held in aid of St Laurence Church.

Over the years, the event has raised money for other charities like St Richards Hospice, The Nora Parsons Day Centre, Midlands Air Ambulance and local schools.
