MUSIC and horticulture will be brought together for an afternoon of colour and sound at Whitworth Memorial Gardens, in Facit.

The Whitworth And Healey Horticultural Society and the Whitworth Vale and Healey Youth Band have combined to present a ‘Music in the Park’ concert on Sunday, July 21, from 2pm.

Patrons are encouraged to take picnics and seating, and light refreshments will be available at The Riverside across the road.

Anita Farrow from the Horticultural Society said: “The gardens will be in full bloom and should complement the youth band’s music beautifully.

“We’re optimistic, but realistic about the weather and should it rain, we have a contingency plan to move the event indoors to The Riverside.”
