Double the fun for flower fans
People are being invited to take in two green fingered events in one day this month.
Thornbury in Bloom are having an open day in the grounds of Thornbury Castle on Saturday 9 June between 1pm and 5pm. Garden tours will be offered with Katie the new head gardener with a chance to visit the Castle Vineyard and be able to talk to the team who tend it. There will also be tours of the castle as well craft stalls and a plant stall,
At the same time next door, St Mary's Church Flower Festival will also be in full swing, with homemade teas and cakes being served.
The historic doorway will be open, as it was in the 17th century, allowing people in the Castle to go to and from the church.
