Proceeds will be split between two local charities

Twelve Onchan properties will open their garden gates to the public this weekend for the inaugural Onchan Secret Gardens.

The two-day event will give garden fans a chance to enjoy the grounds at Government House, Ashley Hill Primary School, Corrin Court and others.

Around 1,000 people are expected to attend, with proceeds from entry fees going to Manx charities Sight Matters and Live At Home.

Onchan MHK Rob Callister organised the event, and hopes it will grow in the future:

You can purchase a brochure, which gives you entry to the 12 gardens, for £5 from Sight Matters’ Corrin Court.

The gardens will be open between 11am and 4pm tomorrow and Sunday.
