If you plan to take your Mum out on Mother’s Day, Cafe Gallery offers a specially devised menu each year to treat your Mum on her special day.  Booking advisable.

Here at Avant we also have our own Gardening Club. It is held on the second Wednesday of each month in comfortable surroundings.  The meetings last for 90 minutes, beginning at 10.30 am and finishing at 12.00 noon.  There is a nominal charge of £7.00 per meeting.  This covers the cost of the room and pays for the guest speakers who come along offering a vast array of advice and information to help you improve your own garden.  If you would like more information, tel: 01772 433777.  We hope you can find time to come along and join our lovely small and informal club.

Also, you can bring your own basket for refilling or simply choose a basket you wish to fill with our own garden centre team.  Our creative plantaria staff will take you through how to make and look after your beautiful hanging basket, to the envy of all your neighbours.  When we hold it, this event is free (excluding cost of basket and filling materials) but booking is essential.

Orchid Day has become an annual fixture of the Avant calendar.  Chris Channon, orchid expert and exponent of Orchid Technology’s products, never ceases to entertain and educate with his orchid culture talks and repotting demonstrations.  Next scheduled event: TBC. No booking required, just  bring your orchid plants!!

Art Preview Evenings are held monthly the work of local artists, sculptors and craftsmen.  The exhibitors change each month and these Preview Evenings are an opportunity to take a sneaky peak as well as meet the artists.  No booking required – just check one is being held.

Father Christmas comes to Avant each December.  He flies in by helicopter and spends time talking to the children, mingling with children and handing out gifts. Date: TBC.  Booking essential.
