THE Hidden Gardens of Manaton will be open for visitors to enjoy to help raise money for the parish hall improvements.

Twelve gardens will be open, which vary in size and character.

The village is in two parts, the northern end around the green, church and parish hall and the southern part, around the Kestor Inn and hamlet of Water. Both gardens will be open.

Everyone is welcome at the event on Saturday, May 15 and Sunday, May 16 from 1pm until 5pm.

Light lunches and creams teas will be available in the parish hall from 12.30pm and there will also be a well stocked plant stall.

Tickets are £4 and cover the two days, as well as all the gardens and can be purchased at the parish hall on both days. Entry for children under 14 is free.
