6th & 7th May – NGS Garden Opening

Just a quick note to let you know of an email we received about an upcoming event in the village, and my apologies to Graham and Irene for the lateness of my posting this, but it was not possible during the update of the website.

Field Farm,  Kirk Ireton will open for the National Gardens Scheme on Thursday and Friday 6th and 7th May from 11-5pm Admission £3 adult, children free.
The 2-acre garden has stunning views and many rare trees and shrubs as well as some amusing sculptures.

Tea and homemade cake are available, and there is parking in our field.
