The new events take place in the Mezzanine Restaurant at Tong Garden Centre on two dates in December and include everything needed to create a 16-inch Christmas wreath, plus refreshments.

The events have been organised by senior marketing assistant, Harriet Hardiment who said: "Hosted in the beautiful surroundings of The Mezzanine and led by our team of experts, the workshops are perfect for getting together with friends or as an early Christmas gift.

"Whether you're a seasoned wreath-maker or looking to learn a new skill, our team will be on hand to guide you every step of the way and to make your experience memorable.

"We've got everything you need to create a beautiful, bespoke wreath. We'll welcome you to the workshop with a glass of Buck's Fizz, there will be coffee and three mini cakes as you craft, and you'll leave the two-hour workshop with a wreath to enjoy throughout the festive season."
