Pots of fam­ily en­joy­ment as gardens at­tract full house

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - School Holiday Fun - By Laerke Chris­tensen

Chil­dren aired their green fin­gers on Mon­day as Godinton House and Gardens started a week of out­door fun.

The venue wel­comed over 100 chil­dren for trail walks, crafts and in­tro­duc­tions to gar­den­ing.

Events co-or­di­na­tor Rachel Fagg said that Godinton’s spring week was the ideal time for the fam­ily to en­joy the out­doors.

She said: “It’s a lovely fam­ily week for grand­par­ents, par­ents and chil­dren to come en­joy the lovely gardens.”

In ad­di­tion to daily ac­tiv­i­ties such as gar­den­ing and Eco-Art, the gardens host a trail walk with ques­tions.

Mrs Fagg added: “The ques­tions on the gar­den trail mean that some lit­tle chil­dren can do it while some may need help from their par­ents. It’s re­ally a fam­ily ac­tiv­ity.”

Ac­tiv­i­ties con­tinue to­day (Thurs­day) and to­mor­row (Fri­day) from 1pm to 4pm. Ad­mis­sion is £5 for adults and £4 for chil­dren.
