Norma Moore, General Manager of the award-winning garden centre, said: “Everyone is welcome to our free Christmas Open Evenings.
Anyone who comes along to the garden centre between 6pm and 9pm from Tuesday, November 27 until Thursday, November 29 will have the chance to meet Santa. “We will also be giving visitors a free mince pie and a complimentary glass of mulled wine for customers who are aged 18 and over, while stocks last. “There will be the opportunity for people to take part in free tasting sessions too.
Visitors will be able to sample Christmas food and chocolate. People over the age of 18 will be able to try local speciality beers and ciders too. “During the Christmas Open Evenings we will be serving a traditional festive dinner and Christmas pudding in our restaurant from 6pm until 8pm for £9.99 per person.” Members of the garden centre’s loyalty club scheme will receive double reward points during the event on all purchases but some restrictions will apply.
