Make an Easter garden!

Whatever age you are, why not make an Easter Garden for the display in Thornton’s St. Peter’s church next weekend. And what a great way to keep the children busy!

All under 16’s who have made a garden will receive a small Easter Egg to say “thank you” for taking part. “What’s this all about” you may ask? Well; it will be similar to the Christmas Tree Festival except we are requesting portable, home-made miniature gardens to be brought to St. Peter’s church to help us all celebrate the Easter season. The church will be open to receive your garden on Friday 26th April between 3pm & 6.30pm and also Saturday 27th April between 10am and 12 noon. “When can the Gardens be viewed?” The church will be open for the All Age Service at 10.30am on Sunday 28th April, please do come along and see what we’re all about. The church will also be open on Saturday and Sunday afternoons, 27th and 28th April, from 2pm – 5pm. Entry is free and refreshments will be available to buy. “How could I make my own miniature Easter Garden?” . More info on how to make your garden at
