The National Trust’s garden will be blossoming with fragrant roses which epitomise an English summer’s day.

Madame Isaac Pereire and Blush Noisette are among the varieties awaiting visitors to this year’s fair.

“With the garden at its summer-time best and gardeners on hand to answer any questions visitors may have, there can hardly be a more harmonious way to spend a summer’s afternoon,” said Gardener in Charge, Allison Napier.

Wisbech Rose Fair will be celebrated at Peckover House from Wednesday July 2 to Saturday July 5 from 11am to last admission at 4.30pm. Proceeds from Thursday 3 will be donated to the National Garden Scheme.

There will be no extra charge for this event. For further details call 01945 583463 or visit www.nationaltrust.org.uk/peckover.
