Strawberry Field's gates open to the public

Beatles fans will be able to follow in the footsteps of John Lennon as the grounds of the children's home which inspired Strawberry Fields Forever are opened to the public.

From Saturday, visitors will have the chance to walk through the gardens of the Strawberry Field home in Woolton, Liverpool, where Lennon would play as a boy.

The musician used to climb over the wall to gain entry to the Beaconsfield Road home, which he later immortalised in song, but the Salvation Army is now opening the site's famous red gates to the public as a tourist attraction and youth training centre.

Special charity pins have been designed by celebrities as a small way for people to say thank you to someone who has helped them during the coronavirus crisis. Actress Keira Knightley designed two flying birds swooping together into a near heart shape on her pin badge while former Beatle Sir Ringo Starr put a peace symbol inside a love heart in his design. The words "heartfelt thanks" appear on the rim of each badge, which has been created for the #PinYourThanks project.
