CLAXBY’S Penny Lyle will be opening her garden next month to raise money for charity.

Both the National Garden Scheme charities and the village church will benefit from visitors to the garden at Corner House, in Pelham Road, at the junction with St Mary’s Lane on Sunday, June 3.

Corner House garden is an informal three-quarter of an acre country garden with a small wooded area, pergolas with clematis and roses, herbaceous borders and mature specimen trees.

The bog garden is maturing from its creation in 2010/2011 and a few new small additions have been added to the main garden since it first opened as a yellow book garden last year.

Norma Howe of Claxby will be displaying her art work and sculptures in a large summerhouse and there will also be a plant stall, manned by knowledgeable volunteers, a small craft stall with garden-related items, a second-hand book stall and a raffle.

Teas and home-made cakes will be served during the opening hours – 11am to 5pm.

Admission to the garden is £2.50, which goes to the NGS charities, together with ten per cent of the raffle takings and plant and tea sales, with the rest going to St Mary’s.

The Three Sisters Vineyard in the village will also be open.
