PARISH councillor John Clowes and wife Linda will open their Croco Brook Farm garden to public in aid of the British Red Cross on Sunday, June 18, between 1pm and 5pm.


The couple have lived at the farmhouse since 1979, and the two-thirds of an acre garden contains a range of interesting plants that complement each other during all four seasons.

Tea and cakes will be on offer, and visitors will be able to buy plants which have been grown in the garden.

Kerry Threadgill, senior community fundraiser at the regional branch of the charity, said: “We are thrilled to have John and Linda opening their beautiful garden in support of the British Red Cross."

Former garden designer John says the areas of different paving, a lily pool and a range of perennials shrubs and trees are grown to work together to create an attractive collection.

Entry will cost £4 for adults, with children going free to the farmhouse in Selkirk Drive. Funds raised will support the charity's work in the community.
