Great gardens prove a feast for the eyes

THESE are just a few of the beautiful gardens opened to the public as part of a village's popular annual showcase.

Thorpe Hesley Garden Open Day on Saturday attracted more than 200 visitors and raised more than £2,500 for Holy Trinity Church funds.

There’s another treat in store for garden lovers next weekend, July 15 and 16, as another Thorpe — Thorpe Salvin — holds its annual garden trial.

“The Garden Trail is the result of a huge year round effort on the part of many volunteers,” said Jonathan Cobb, chairman of Thorpe in Bloom.

“As ever, we’re looking forward to meeting all the visitors to our village — faces old and new.

“It's always a delight to be able to swap garden tips with those who share our interests.”
Thorpe Salvin is located on the border between South Yorkshire , Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire and lies between Harthill and Shireoaks.

Entrance to the event is £5 per adult and children go free, with free car parking available.
