Have your say

Melton couple Richard and Hilary Lawrence, of Scalford Road, opened their garden to the public on Sunday as part of the National Gardens Scheme. Mr Lawrence said: “It went extremely well. So far we’ve raised about £1,100. We’ve had two private visits as well as the open day and we have two more visits booked before the end of the summer.”

Proceeds from the entrance fees will go to National Gardens Scheme charities, with other monies raised going to the Fight for Sight charity.
