The Priory, in Stoke-by-Nayland, is opening up its gardens in aid of charity.

The British Red Cross will benefit from the venue signing up to the charity’s Open Gardens season.

People can explore the gardens and see a variety of plants and flowers.

Henry Engleheart, The Priory’s owner said: “We are incredibly proud to open for British Cross. It is a fantastic cause and one we fully support. We are working hard to ensure the garden is in the best shape possible for guests to enjoy.”

Paul Fleet, senior community fundraiser for British Red Cross, said: “I would encourage people to come along.”
