One of the nicest gardens in East Anglia, Wickets in Langley Upper Green, will be open for charity on Bank Holiday Monday, May 1.

The garden, owned by Susan and Doug Copeland, will raise money for the National Gardens Scheme, which supports health charities.

Acclaimed as a peaceful country garden with fine pastoral views, it looks particularly good in spring and currently has camassia, spring flowers and even some tulips hanging on. There are wide informal borders, a large pond and two landscaped meadows.

Founded in 1927, The National Gardens Scheme (NGS) has donated more than £22 million to charity in the past ten years. The NGS gave £2.7 million in 2016 to nursing and other caring charities from money raised by opening more than 3,800 private gardens in England and Wales. Charities supported by the National Garden Scheme include Macmillan Cancer Support, Marie Curie, Hospice UK, and Parkinson’s UK

Open from 1pm to 5pm, admission £4.50. Children free. Home-made teas. (Postcode CB11 4RY).
