An over reliance on “screen” entertainment can leave youngsters unchallenged, so Wyevale Nurseries have come up with the idea of Busy Bee Week. Held over the half term holiday, parents and children can enjoy gardening, baking and crafts. I dropped in on the baking session yesterday morning, it was great to see the little ones make and shape biscuits and buns, and then to smell and see the finished result when they emerged from the oven. Our nearest Wyevale Nursery is at Gosforth Park (the old Peter Barrett’s). Parking is easy, and sessions are held in the airy community room that adjoins the restaurant. For full details Click here.
