Admission is £2.50, and free for children, and cream teas and ploughman’s lunches will be served.

Parkside comprises a woodland walk, cordon fruit trees, soft fruit bushes, a vegetable area, greenhouse and a pond.

Admission is £5, and free for under 12s.

There is a display marking this month’s 200th anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo at St Luke’s Parish Church.
