Gardeners’ open day

Keen gardeners Melvin and Wendy Taylor are throwing open their gate to the public to raise money for charity.

They are opening their half-acre garden at The Paddock, Manknell Road, Whittington Moor, Chesterfield, to the public, on Sunday, July 3, from 11am until 4pm.

Visitors will be able to admire the garden, which includes a koi-filled pond, and stroll to a pergola where cream teas will be served.

Proceeds are in aid of various good causes including the support of cancer and hospice patients.
