Calling all green-fingered supporters of the Herts Air Ambulance team – show off your prized plot this summer and be part of the charity’s inaugural Summer of Open Gardens.

The charity is encouraging people to throw open their garden gates between May and September to help keep the service flying high.

Bride Hall, the listed Jacobean mansion in Ayot St Lawrence, has already signed up to the pioneering scheme, and the stunning formal gardens, orchards and surrounding woodland at the historic site will be open to the public on Saturday, July 4.

Essex & Herts Air Ambulance Trust volunteer manager Jen Wall said: “We are very excited about this brand new initiative to raise vital funds and awareness.

“You could open your garden as part of a group with friends, family and neighbours.

You may also want to watch:

“Your garden does not have to be huge – we are looking to involve gardens of all types and sizes that will provide pleasure and inspiration for visitors.”

If you are proud of your garden and would like to take part, you can get in touch with Jen on 0345 2417 690 or email to find out more.
