Squire’s Garden Centre in West Horsley is starting a free drop-in story time session for pre-school children with their parents or guardians, held every Monday 9.30-10.00am during term-time. The first one will start on Monday 11, September. These are fun, interactive sessions for children to listen to a story, read by a member of the Squire’s team in their Café Bar at West Horsley.
Story time sessions help children get interested in books from an early age, improve their listening skills and can enhance their attention span. Squire’s said they are a great opportunity for little ones to start socialising with other children and for parents or guardians to meet up with other local families.
Squire’s has always had close connections with schools and the local community with a particular passion for encouraging new generations of gardeners through a year-round programme of workshops for all ages and abilities and supports local charities which are chosen each year by staff at the different centres.
