Award-winning Grasscroft garden on show again to raise charity funds

AN AWARD-WINNING Grasscroft garden is once again opening to the public to raise funds for Christies NHS Foundation Hospital.

Tom Adamson and Doreen Tetlow have scooped numerous awards over 14 years for their garden, which include perennials shrubs, array of flowers including hanging baskets, Begonias and bedding plants.

Their awards include honours in the Parish Council’s annual Saddleworth in Bloom Competition as well as the Oldham Council Private Garden Competition.

Now, on Saturday, July 13, locals have another chance to admire the beautiful setting at the couple’s Open Garden event from 2pm-5pm at Hylands, 46 Burnedge Lane, Grasscroft.

There will also be tea, coffee and cake raffle with prizes donated by local businesses, and a brica-brac stall.

Tom said: “We hope people will come along to see the garden, as we put a lot of hard work into it, and we’re hoping to raise a good amount for a great cause.”

Last time Tom and Doreen held an Open Garden event in 2017, around 70 guests attended and helped to raise £870.90 for the British Heart Foundation.
