Three Clavering gardens will open for charity under the National Garden Scheme Festival Weekend on Sunday June 3.

Held annually and now in its sixth year, the Festival Weekend celebrates glorious gardens in bloom at the height of the season. Over 316 gardens will be opening across England and Wales, with opportunities to visit in every county.

The Clavering gardens are Chestnut Cottage, Piercewebbs and Blacksmith’s Cottage, which is a new garden to the scheme.

Admission is £5 and children are admitted free. The gardens are open from 11am to 5pm

Home-made teas will be available all day. The charities supported by the scheme include Macmillan Cancer Support, Marie Curie, Hospice UK, The Carers Trust, Queens Nursing Institute, Multiple Sclerosis Society and Parkinson’s UK. The National Garden Scheme, which began in 1926, is the most significant charitable funder of nursing charities in the country. It has raised £50 million so far.
