The snowdrop-filled garden of the late Cliff Curtis was opened for its final time at his home in Chapel Street, Haconby, as part of the National Gardens Scheme in aid of nursing charities.

It was opened for a weekend recently by Joan, his wife, and Sharron White, his daughter, as a tribute to him and his years of dedication.
