Fancy a change from football? Then go along to the delightful village of Yardley Hastings on Sunday June 30th where 17 gardens of all shapes and sizes, a free Art exhibition and some delicious refreshments await you.

On Sunday June 30th, Yardley Hastings will be holding its biennial Open Gardens event between 11am and 5.30pm, in aid of St Andrew's Church. There will be 17 gardens open to delight and inspire - cottage and more formal gardens; established and new planting; allotments and vegetable plots and the extensive gardens of The Old Rectory. A number of these are new venues, opening for the first time this year. If you want a sneak preview of some of the gardens then visit Love Yardley Hastings Facebook

There will also be an opportunity to see inside The Court Parlour (c. 1340), the remains of the Hastings family Manor House and the oldest residential structure in the village, which is not normally open to the public.
