Come and enjoy an afternoon in the garden! There will be treasure hunts, bug hunting, den making, bark rubbing, seed growing and many more activities.

Sessions are free to attend and suitable for ages three to eight. Children must be accompanied by an adult who can also join in with the activities, relax in the beautiful garden (refreshments will be provided) or take part in some gentle gardening activities.

The sessions will run from 4.30-6pm starting on August 31, for six weeks.
