A nature reserve near Sudbury is hosting two open days to showcase their unique displays of roses.

Daws Hall, owned by Major Iain Grahame and his wife Bunny Campione, opens on select days each year for seasonal floral displays.

The roses, which are a range of varieties not often seen in the UK, are currently in full bloom. Mrs Campione said: “They look fantastic. They are particularly good as they are mostly types of roses you do not often see elsewhere.”

The nature reserve, on Henny Road, will be open between 1pm and 5pm on Sunday, June 18, and again between the same times on Sunday, June 25.

Entrance costs £6 for adults, free for under fives and £1 for children. Refreshments will be available on the day.

The first Sunday is part of the National Garden Scheme, supporting a range of nursing charities.

The second will raise funds for the Daws Hall Education Centre.
