Three delightful and extensive gardens will be open month to raise funds for the St Andrew’s Children’s Hospice in Grimsby.

Everyone is invited to go along on Sunday, June 21, to explore the gardens between 11am and 5pm, while supporting the worthy charity.

Margaret Pinney has organised the open gardens day with the generous support of her two friends and neighbours, and at Springfield Farm she will be hosting a variety of craft stalls together with a plant stall and home made cake stall.

And with her team of helpers, she will also be serving afternoon teas, with her lovely old farmhouse garden set out as a series of ‘rooms’ with something to cater for all interests – with plenty of car parking space, too.

Visitors to the Old Rectory will find ample space available at St Julian’s Church for parking while they explore the large and relaxing family garden, where it is easy to imagine life as it used to be lived in years gone by, with leisurely games on the rectory lawns where maids would serve dainty sandwiches and tea in china cups.

A short distance down the road, visitors will find the Georgian walled garden, which has been transformed from dereliction by the dedicated new owners who have spent many hours of hard work and patience to restore it to its former glory.

Formerly part of the Panton Hall Gardens, it too is a delight and again very spacious with lots of different areas to explore and plenty of parking space on the roadside.
