Dobbies Garden Centre staff say they have a spring in their step with the launch of the family-friendly Easter Bunny Breakfast in the Swindon store.

Families in Swindon are invited along to Dobbies’ restaurant from 6 to 8 & 10 April to enjoy an 'egg-cellent' breakfast, followed by a scavenger hunt activity around the store with the Easter bunny.

Children in attendance will also get the chance to take part in a workshop where they will plant up miniature carrots with Dobbies’ bunny, and resident horticultural team. Once finished, children will get to take home their planted miniature carrots as well as their own mini Maltesers bunny.

Staff say there will be a great selection of breakfast options on offer, including a children’s cooked breakfast - also available as a vegetarian option - or cheesy beans on toast, all served with a choice of apple juice, orange juice or water.

Adults will have the choice of a traditional or vegetarian cooked breakfast.

If customers are looking for a lighter option, staff say they can opt for a breakfast stack or a three-item breakfast roll. Each dish will come with the choice of a pot of tea or regular coffee.

Sarah Murray, Dobbies’ Partnership and Events Manager said: "Easter is a special time of year in the gardening calendar. It’s a great time to educate children on the variety of fruit and vegetables that can be grown in the garden and the seasonal plants and flowers that bloom in spring.

“Our Easter Bunny Breakfast in Swindon is a wonderful activity for the whole family, especially those looking after the kids over the Easter break. Seasonal events are very popular in-store, and we anticipate this selling out quickly. We’d recommend booking spaces in advance to avoid any disappointment.”

Dobbies’ Easter Bunny Breakfast is suitable for families with children aged 3-10 years old, and children under 3 can still take part with the support of an adult. Child tickets cost £9.99 each, and adult tickets start from £7.45, inclusive of meals.
