Gardens will be open under the National Garden Scheme this month and next raising money for the Help Support Our Nurses campaign.

Open for people who pre-book under the e-ticket system will be: The Old Vicarage, Church End, Broxted CM6 2BU, opening on Sunday, June 14. Scrips House, Cut Hedge Lane, Coggeshall CO61RL which is opening each Friday in July and Feeringbury Manor, Feering CO6 3RH, open every Thursday and Friday from June 18 to the end of July.

To comply with social distancing, visitors will be able to choose a timed slot. There will be no refreshments but where there is space people can bring picnics. Access to toilets will only be provided in an emergency and so long as it does not involve access to a house.

Founded in 1927 to raise funds for community nurses the National Garden Scheme has donated over £60 million to nursing and health charities and is the largest single funder for many of its beneficiaries.

In 2019 the gardens raised £4 million. In 2020, 3,700 gardens were scheduled to open, but the current lockdown means that their gates have been closed for the first time in the charity’s history.
