Wyevale enters Rio Olympic spirit

Some 46 Wyevale Garden Centres are hosting Olympic-themed children's events to mark the start of the games in Brazil.

Wyevale Garden Centres will be holding a series of activity days for children throughout the summer holidays, all aimed at helping children appreciate the rich culture Brazil has to offer.

The events are aimed at children between the ages of three and eight.

Today sees a carnival cookies and cupcakes session, where children will be shown how to decorate and bake giant oak cakes with tropical fruit.

A Snailympics Tray Planter workshop will help the kids create a happy home for snails to race in.

The themed events run between August 2 and August 25.

All events must be pre-booked online at www.wyevalegardencentres.co.uk/braziliant-adventures.

Wyevale recently submitted accounts for 2015.

Garden centres are increasingly adding soft play, children's events and activities to their offers.
