With the May half term fast approaching and the weather beginning to brighten up, Squire’s Garden Centre will be on hand to help youngster enjoy the great outdoors.

A range of create and grow activities will be offered daily at the Cobham, Hersham and Long Ditton centres, with fun for children, and parents, of all ages.

Green-fingered families or those who wish to turn their hand to something new are invited to visit the garden centres in the borough and plant up a vegetable box, before taking it home to nurture it as the vegetables begin to grow.

Sarah Squire, deputy chairman of Squire’s garden centres, said: “Our half term events are extremely popular with the children and their parents.

“The youngsters always enjoy engaging in a whole range of different activities which keep idle hands busy, and they’re sure to be a hit with parents looking for inexpensive ways to entertain their children over the holidays.”

A number of free activities including treasure hunts and colouring competitions will also take place, with prizes on offer for winners and stickers for all participants.

Create and Grow at Squire's Garden Centres; Stoke Road, Cobham, Burwood Road, Hersham and Woodstock Lane North, Long Ditton; May 27 to May 30, activities run each day from 9am to 12pm; £5 per create and grow box; for more information visit squiresgardencentres.co.uk.
