Pots of family enjoyment as gardens attract full house
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.
