Gates opening at two properties as part of the National Gardens Scheme
Two houses in Kilmington will be opening their grounds to visitors later this month as part of the National Gardens Scheme.
Breach, off Shute Road, and Spinney Two, on Shute Road will open their gates on Saturday and Sunday, June 17 and 18, from 1.30pm to 5pm.
There will be home-made teas at Breach in aid of St. Giles’ Church, along with plants for sale. There is wheelchair access to main parts of gardens and dogs are welcome on leads. Admission is £5 to visit both, with children free.
Organisers say people should take along a camera and take part in the NGS photographic competition with a chance to win a visit to Mary Berry’s lovely garden.
