BRADLEY residents will throw open the gates of their gardens to the public next week as they raise cash to replant the church yard. On June 28 and 29 nine gardens will open and there will be a plant sale and refreshments at the village hall, with a barbecue at Priory Farm on the Sunday. Gardens will open from 12pm to 5pm on Saturday and 2-5pm on Sunday and tickets for all nine are £3. Residents hope to restore the St Mary and All Saints church yard planting, following the felling of a Copper Beech tree, which had begun growing there during the reign of Queen Victoria but was left unsafe after being struck by fungus last year. Peter Whittaker, one of the organisers of the event, said: “The gardens are varied, some large, some small, some formal and some informal, some unusual plans and some staples of an English country garden. We’d like visitors to come and enjoy the scents and colours of midsummer in and around this most picturesque Staffordshire village.”
