Residents of Scalford Road, Melton have had one of their most successful open gardens.

Richard and Hilary Lawrence welcomed guests to their plot on Sunday raising £955 for Fight for Sight and the National Garden Scheme.

Mr Lawrence said: “This year we had more people than ever pushing our total up for the last 12 months to £1,447 for each charity.

“My wife and I are very keen gardeners and have an interesting garden. Rather than keep it to ourselves we like to share and show it off to others.”
