A VILLAGE opened its gardens to the public.

Bretforton village opened its gardens on Sunday June 3 with over 400 visitors coming from far and wide, some from as far away as Scotland, to admire the gardens.

The variety of gardens ranged from small cottage gardens to the extensive and amazing grounds of Bretforton Manor.

Visitors saw scarecrows dotted around the village as part of the nursery rhym' themed competition.

On returning to the manor they could buy a selection of plants or relax and listen to the Bretforton choir.
