Despite a chilly start to the day, people arrived early for the Forestry’s Easter Eggstravaganza at Ardentinny’s beach on Easter Monday. Glenfinart Walled Garden was open to all with the tea tent selling drinks and home baking from 11a.m. By 2.40p.m. they were sold out as there was a constant stream of appreciative customers.
The children, parents and grannies thoroughly enjoyed the craft activities in the shed – Mask making and Easter Finger Puppets. Before long the garden was awash with masked children and even some masked adults!
There were also sunflower seeds to plant and take home, and the children could try their hand at throwing a pot on a Potter’s Wheel which will be fired and ready to collect in 3 weeks’ time.
Finally, the sun came out and shone down on all the happy faces. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the day and the Walled Garden is now richer by £520. A big thank you to all who made it such a success, THANK YOU!
