Christmas Fayre

We had a great day on Saturday.  The weather stayed dry although very cold.

Thank you to everyone who supported us by taking tables, the Friends for teas, coffees and home baking and for everyone who came along.

If you’re stuck for ideas for Christmas why not  buy a Suntrap gift voucher and let them choose what they would like either from the Plant Centre or from one of our Spring evening classes or workshops.
