There will be a range of free and paid for activities each week, with lots of stickers for children to collect, themed word searches and crosswords which have been beautifully designed with child-friendly images that evoke garden nature for children.  Activities will take about 20 minutes and paid-for activities must be booked in advance.

The activities make for a great morning out with us and can be co-ordinated with a visit to our popular Café Bar and the opportunity to enjoy a light bite in cool, stylish surroundings – or perhaps a lunch from the ‘Little Gardener’s’ menu, perfect for hungry children who have completed their ‘Create & Grow’ activity.

Sarah Squire, Chairman of Squire’s Garden Centres, comments: “We are delighted to welcome young visitors and once again offer a wonderful range of craft and planting activities over the summer break – and this time we have come up with a bumper crop so there will be something for everyone to enjoy!  The activities will take just the right amount of time to occupy enquiring young minds and there are some lovely items to create and take home that will give children a real sense of achievement and hopefully inspire them to think about growing and nature in the garden.”
