GARDENS at a National Garden Scheme (NGS) site in Chirk is holding an open day event this week, allowing visitors to enjoy the scenery and views it has to offer.

Brynkinalt Hall will be opening its gardens to the public on Sunday, May 23 to raise funds for charities supported by the NGS.

The gardens will be open between midday and 4pm, and custodian Kate Hill-Trevor is encouraging people to visit while they can.

She said: “We are delighted to be able welcome visitors once again and to help raise funds for the many charities supported by the NGS.

“The rhododendrons and azaleas in the Shrubbery will be in full bloom and visitors can enjoy walking the grass paths through the woodland garden with beautiful trees and views out over the lower part of the Ceiriog valley.”

Visitors are asked to adhere to Covid-19 guidelines during their visit, to enable safety for all in attendance.

Kate continued: “Social distancing and hand sanitising will be required to ensure the safety of all visitors and staff but we have plenty of space within the garden.

“Masks should be worn where social distancing is not possible. Tickets can be purchase in advance through the NGS website or bought on the gate.

“If people are able to book online in advance, this will help us to maintain social distancing on the day.”

Take away tea, coffee and homemade cake will be on sale.

The West Garden with its formal roses, herbaceous borders and hedges will also be open later in the year on Thursday, September 2.
