A COUPLE from Hale Barns are opening their beautiful garden to the public for one day only.

Mr and Mrs Booth are opening their lush two-thirds acre garden as part of the National Open Garden Scheme.

Their south-facing garden was originally laid out in 1959 by Clibrans of Altrincham and kept in immaculate condition ever since.

The garden opens on Saturday and visitors can enjoy the gently sloping lawn, woodland walk, seating areas and terrace as they take in the borders of mixed shrubs and plants.

Home-made teas will be available and the terrace can be accessed by wheelchairs.

The garden is at 64 Carrwood in Hale Barns, WA15 0EP and will be open from 2pm to 6pm.

Admission is £5 and children go free.

The National Open Garden Scheme gives the public access to more than 3,500 private gardens. Through admissions, tea and cakes the scheme has raised a total of £55 million for nursing and health charities like Macmillan Cancer and Marie Curie since it began in 1927.
