The Ark

The Hanging Baskets of Monkgate

Sat November 26th, 2016

In the run up to Christmas we held a 'novel' event for the Ark - "How to make Christmas Hanging Baskets" with local gardening expert Des Mossop. It was on Saturday 26th November at 7.30pm and we had quite a crowd who came to the event - not for the Thomas's mince pies or the hot chocolate, but to learn how to make these displays.

Des got some of the group involved in making baskets - just to prove they could and everyone had a great time.

Des Mossop was instructive and very funny too! We had a quiz and the winner took home a free hanging basket. Afterwards, Des sold his samples that he brought with him and took some orders too.
