A town garden with an oriental feel is open to the public this weekend as part of the National Open Gardens scheme.

People are expected to visit from across the region for a garden that last year helped raise more than £900 for a range of medical charities.

Paul and Maria Nielsen Bom have spent the last 12 months preparing for a flood of visitors to their garden which includes ferns, Mediterranean plants, a pond with koi carp and oriental statues.

Mrs Nielsen Bom said: “It has taken a lot of hard work preparing. Last year people came from all over including Cambridge, Peterborough and Luton.”

The garden features an ornamental waterfall and a corner with a fountain.
