A HAMPSHIRE couple are throwing their garden open to the public for the last time next month in aid of charity.

Lake House in Mill Lane, Romsey, will be open to the public on July 6 and all the cash raised will go towards Age UK in Winchester.

Owners of the property Dai and Lorraine Henley have opened their four-and-a- half acre garden annually for about four years to bring in cash for the charity. They are moving so this year’s will be the last event at Lake House.

The couple, who are shortly moving to a two-bedroom town house in Winchester’s College Walk, arrived in Romsey just over 14 years ago.

Mr Henley once owned Southampton Audi and Volkswagen and was a past president of Winchester Rugby Club.

Now retired, he’s turned to writing books and has just finished penning a crime novel.

Lakeside House gardens will be open between 11am and 4pm on July 6 and admission is £3.50 per person and there is no charge for children under 12.
