A GARDEN described as “Worcester’s answer to Heligan” will be open to the public later this month.

The River School in Droitwich Road is taking part in the National Garden Scheme on Thursday, July 27.

The site was known as the Oakfield Teacher Training College for Horticulture for 35 years and attracted visitors from around the world.

It’ll be open from 10.30am to 3.30pm on the 27th and admission is £5 for adults, free for children.

Light refreshments will be available. No dogs allowed.
