AN AWARD-WINNING garden is set to open to the public at Solihull’s Marie Curie Hospice this weekend.

From 11am until 4pm on Sunday (June 30) there will be a Blooming Great Tea Party where guests can also have a slice of cake and cup of tea.

The garden which won the gold award in the beautiful borders category at this year’s BBC Gardener’s World event at the Birmingham NEC has been set up at the Marsh Lane hospice for patients and their carers to enjoy.

Designer Emma Berry worked with hospice volunteers to create the show-stopping greenery, with the theme of the garden design competition being A Space for Remembrance.

It is being opened in conjunction with the National Garden Scheme.

Suzanne McArthur, community engagement lead at the Hospice, said: “Our gardens mean so much to our patients and their families and friends.

“They provide a much-needed serene space for them to enjoy together and are kept in immaculate condition by our fabulous team of gardening volunteers.

“Without them giving up their time to do this we simply would not have this beautiful outdoor space and for that we are so grateful.

“We would now love to invite the public to come and view the gardens for themselves and enjoy some lovely homemade treats afterwards in our hospice.”

Admission costs £3 for adults and children are free.

The event will run from 11am-4pm and will be £3 to enter (children go free).
