A VILLAGE’S gardens will open their gates to the public to raise money for local charities and organisations.

Attendees at Westbourne Open Gardens can enjoy small patio gardens, carefully manicured and mature gardens, and large spaces with impressive vistas.

All proceeds from the event will raise money for charities.

There will be the opportunity to sample English wines and a raffle with prizes.

Children can get involved with treasure trails.

Special guests will include Westbourne resident Ed Bond, winner of the Allotment Challenge 2014 and William Hardie, co-presenter of Channel 4’s George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces.

The event is on Sunday, June 14 and the cost of entry is £7 while children under 14 go free.

Gardens will be open from 10.30am to 5pm with a large, clearly sign-posted car park being available on the day at The Wren Centre in Westbourne Road.
