West End star heads to Clevedon
West End star will open gardens in Clevedon to raise money for charity
A WEST End star will be opening up some beautiful gardens in Clevedon to raise money for charity.
A group of keen gardeners in the Sixways area of the town will be throwing their gardens open to visitors on July 3 and Marti Webb, star of Tell Me On A Sunday, Evita and Half A Sixpence, will be cutting the ribbon to declare them open at 30 Albert Road at 2pm.
All gardens are within comfortable strolling distance of each other and tea and home-made cakes will be on offer as guests take in the beautiful flowers, plants and breathtaking views.
Organiser Bob Purnell, a garden designer and writer said: “The weather was very kind to us last year. We can only cross our fingers and hope for a repeat performance.

“Sadly this is the very last time my own garden will be open so I hope I will be able to share it with a record crowd and go out on a high. If you’re free that afternoon, please come along.”
Ten gardens will be open from 2-5pm and programmes, which cover entry to all gardens, are priced at �4.50 and are available on the day from 23 and 30 Albert Road.
