A PICTURESQUE garden in Bromsgrove is going on display to the public.

Alan and Lynn Nokes, of Braces Lane, will be opening their garden on Saturday, September 6.

The garden, which is named Round Hill Garden, is being opened as part of the National Garden Scheme, (NGS).

The scheme opens popular and interesting gardens nationally, to raise money for charity.

Each year a guest charity benefits and Marie Curie Cancer Care, Macmillan Cancer Support, Help the Hospices and Carers Trust have been among those to benefit in the past.

This year the charity chosen is Parkinson's UK. Parkinson's is a progressive neurological condition and the charity works to offer support, and to find a cure.

The fundraiser has gained added significance for Alan as he was diagnosed with early onset Parkinson's, earlier this year.

Round Hill Garden has proved popular in the past, featuring a Mediterranean area with some unusual and rare exotic plants.

It will be open between 7pm and 10pm.

This year it is advised to go early to see the garden in daylight, which transforms under lights.

Sarah Wakeman from Parkinson’s UK, said: “Alan and Lynn really do have a beautiful garden and I would encourage anyone interested in gardening to come and view it.

“Our work is totally dependent on donations, and it is because of supporters like Alan and Lynn raising money that we can continue our work to find a cure and improve the quality of life for people affected by Parkinson’s.”

On the night visitors will be able to enjoy a free glass of wine or soft drink, and purchase hot dogs and homemade burgers being cooked on the barbecue.

The number of visitors is limited, but anyone interested in attending can pre-book tickets to ensure entry at any time during the evening.

Any unsold tickets will be available on the night.

Tickets are priced at £5 per adult, while children go free.
