Broseley will be opening its gardens to the public on Sunday 26 June when the town will be holding its annual Open Gardens Day. Last year’s event saw some eight gardens open to the public and this year’s Day promises to be just as

extensive. The gardens will be open from 1.30 – 5.30 pm giving visitors ample time to enjoy all those on display. Refreshments will be available at All Saints’ Church in Church Street and tickets may be obtained from there on the day, from any of the open gardens, or in advance from James Hurdley (E Davis) or Downes in the High Street. The cost is £3.00 each, with children under 12 free.

In addition to this popular attraction, it has been decided to reinstate Broseley’s Garden Competition, starting this year with three categories – best frontage display, best private garden and best business or commercial display. Judging will be held in July with entries to be received by the end of June. Entry forms are available from James Hurdley (E Davis) or Downes
