Santa’s on his way to Woodthorpe Park Plant Shop for a day of festive family fun on Saturday December 12th.  Anyone dreaming of a green Christmas will find a winter wonderland of Christmas trees, plants and gifts at the special event taking place from 9.30am to 3.30pm.  There will also be craft stalls, face painting, roast chestnuts and refreshments.

The Lord Mayor of Nottingham, Councillor Jackie Morris, will mingle with shoppers from 11am and will meet the staff of the new plant shop, which sits beside Nottingham City Council’s Nursery, hub of the award-winning Nottingham in Bloom campaign.  Plants for sale include Poinsettia and Cyclamen grown at the nursery, as well as a wide range of seasonal plants and shrubs.

Councillor Dave Trimble, Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Culture, said: “The new shop has been busy every day since first opening its doors at the weekend. The festive family fun day is a great opportunity for everyone to enjoy doing their Christmas shopping in beautiful surroundings while supporting the work of the nursery and the city’s parks.”

Woodthorpe Park Plant Shop is open daily until Wednesday December 23rd at Woodthorpe Park, Woodthorpe Drive, Nottingham NG5 4HA.  More information on
