Moreton Gardens Open Again!

They've been the hidden treasure of a Dorset village for the last two years and this Easter we'll finally get to see them in all their glory.

Moreton village gardens are re-opening to the public on Monday.

Tabitha Schofield and her husband who've lived in the village for 6 years have now taken up the lease.

She hopes they'll be used by the community for local events:

"We are open to any charities really who want to host an event and we will work with them to make it happen. They're three acre, walled gardens with ponds and different features so they're a good place to hold an event.

"We are also opening a free car park so people will be able to come and park."

An Easter Egg Hunt is being held at the Gardens on Easter Monday.

The proper launch event will be an open air concert featuring the Ben Waters Band on the 25 May from 3pm.

Some of the profits from that event will go towards the fund for a new village hall.
