We are delighted to launch our blog with only what seems right for this time of year…. Christmas at Lanchester Garden Centre!
We can very easily face Christmas with a feeling of panic and often worry about what can we buy people, and it’s easy to forget the true sentiment of Christmas- being with the ones you love most.
Friends and family are often those you know best, but even still buying gifts for people can be difficult- it’s a challenge finding unique gifts each year. Christmas at Lanchester Garden Centre is designed to ease these woes, not only by providing a range of gifts and present ideas that you wouldn’t find on the high street or online, but also a place to meet and celebrate the festive period together.
Gardening products can be perfect gifts from stone ornaments for the garden, to the perfect spade or even a present for the home. There’s a good range of Christmas decorations, not forgetting the naughty elves who have filled our shelves and miniature worlds! With our vast range of children’s toys, we now cater for all tastes from upmarket wooden, eco-friendly toys to more basic pocket money ranges which are perfect stocking fillers. Failing all else – we do have a range of vouchers of monetary value and also our afternoon tea voucher, all with one-year validity.
We have already welcomed our potted miniature Christmas trees and look forward to having on site for sale our real 6ft Christmas trees that prove extremely popular every year. In addition to trees, we will be welcoming the main man himself, Santa Claus and his elf in our beautiful Garden Grotto. Tickets can be bought from our shop for £5 and include a gift and an opportunity to talk to Santa and post your letter direct!
The Greenhouse Restaurant will be launching its Christmas Fayre Menu which is available for bookings during the month of December. Christmas Day is already fully booked, but please give your details in case you would like to be considered for cancellations. We have also been working hard on launching a new Christmas Afternoon Tea for both big and little people to enjoy when visiting us in Lanchester. Children will delight at this new treat- it’s very special.
The Aquatics department is also home to many tanks and decorations that also are brilliant gift ideas.
We will be celebrating Christmas with one of our late night shopping events on Friday 1st December 2017 from 5.30pm-8.30pm with a 10% discount on all our Christmas decorations and flowers. There will be mulled wine, and mince pies available from our Greenhouse take away but also the Restaurant will be open to serve coffee and cake.
We would like to wish everyone a wonderful Christmas from all of us at Lanchester Garden Centre.
