Bures ready for open gardens
Green-fingered villagers are busy weeding and mowing this week ahead of the Bures Open Gardens event on May 28-29. Around 20 gardens will be open to the public over the two days, with attractions including a collector’s garden with exotic plants, rose walks, a flint folly and even the chance to see an “0” gauge railway.
Tickets for the event cost £5 for the two days and are available from the church or the gardens. Gardens will be open from 1pm to 6pm each day.
“We’re very excited about welcoming people to the village,” said Carolyn Holbrook.
“There are all kinds of gardens available to view this year from formal and well-established to small and quirky, and everything in between.”
Visitors will also be able to soak up a range of other activities in the village including art exhibitions, plant sales, cream teas and even a book stall.
Early risers will also be able to catch the market on the common on Saturday morning.
Proceeds from the event will be split between St Mary’s Church in Bures and Ferriers Barn, a centre for adults with disabilities.
