Squire's Garden Centre opens pottery studio

Squire's Garden Centre in Badshot Lea near Farnham has opened a new pottery painting studio called Mambo Jambos.

Children and adults visiting Squire's can paint their own pottery pieces with Mambo Jambos staff on hand to offer creative ideas and tips. There are also facilities to have drink and snack while there.
Customers can choose from pottery to paint including mugs, plates, moneyboxes and animals. Each pottery piece is individually priced and starts from £4, plus there’s a studio fee of £2.50 per person. Once painted, the design will be glazed and fired, ready to collect within a few weeks.
You can book children’s birthday parties at Mambo Jambos, and they also have a Toddler Group every Monday 10.30am-12pm in term time for 2-5 year olds for £3.50 per child. You can even get an imprint in clay of your child’s hands or feet.
#Meanwhile, three applications have been lodged for a £10million retail park and new St John’s Garden Centre on the outskirts of Barnstaple, Devon.

An Aldi supermarket, new garden centre, Costa drive-through and Marston’s pub are proposed for the site, where St John's owners Nick and Simon Oliver hope to open in Easter 2019.
