Free Easter activities at Swindon garden centre

By Barrie Hudson - 28 March 2024


Dobbies garden centre in Hythe Road is welcoming families to enjoy an array of Easter activities.

On Sunday April 7 there will be a Little Seedlings Club workshop is taking place on Sunday 7 April, designed to ignite a passion in gardening in an educational and engaging way among children aged three to 10.
The workshop will uncover what a wildlife-friendly garden is and the importance of biodiversity, alongside common wildlife that can be spotted in the garden. 
From pollinators like bees and butterflies to birds, frogs, hedgehogs and squirrels, there’s plenty to spot in the garden as spring arrives.
Dobbies’ Easter Holiday sessions will give attendees in Swindon an introduction to spring, facts about the season, how to create a colourful garden full of flowers and vegetables at home, alongside learning about the vast variety of spring baby animals that can be spotted at this time of year. 
Children will also learn how to plant and care for pansy seeds and get the chance to take some home.
Sarah Murray, who has developed the Easter programme of activity at Dobbies, is excited to welcome families along for some free fun. 
She explained: “Spring is the perfect time to get back into the garden and enjoy the outdoors, and we’re eager to share our love for gardening with passionate young enthusiasts.
“We know how tricky it can be to keep the kids entertained and busy over the school holidays, so bring the whole family to Dobbies’ Swindon store for a fun and interactive session.”
Alongside the family-friendly events, parents can enjoy cost savings with Dobbies’ Kids Eat Free offer which runs through the day, allowing children under the age of 16 to enjoy their food for free with every traditional adult breakfast and main course meal at lunch. This includes children's breakfasts, lunch menu or a pick ‘n’ mix meal, plus a drink.
The restaurant is open Monday-Sunday from 9am, although times may vary and customers are advised to visit to check the restaurant opening hours of the Swindon store.
