Get in the Christmas spirit by signing up to Trust’s Wreath Workshops

People from across Staffordshire are being encouraged to get into the festive spirit by signing up to to attend a Christmas Wreath Workshop being run by the county’s largest nature conservation charity.

Staffordshire Wildlife Trust is holding a series of its popular Christmas Wreath Workshops between November and December at its Wolseley Centre HQ, near Rugeley, Westport Lake Visitor Centre and World of Wedgwood in Stoke-on-Trent, and at its Highgate Common nature reserve, Wombourne.

The Trust’s People Engagement team will guide those attending the sessions step-by-step in helping them to make their own wreath to display proudly over the festive season.

Alexis Johnson, part of the Trust’s People Engagement team, said: “Our wreath workshops usually prove to be extremely popular and we’re anticipating the same again this year.

“Materials used during the sessions will be locally sourced, including from the Trust’s own nature reserve.

“It’s a great way to get in the spirit of the season and take home your own wreath. The sessions are extremely friendly, with festive music and seasonal refreshments, and we’d encourage people to book early to avoid disappointment.”

The workshops take place at The Wolseley Centre on Friday 15th November 7pm-9pm, Sunday 24th November 2pm-4pm, Thursday 28th November 7pm-9pm, Saturday 30th November 2pm-4pm and Thursday 5th December 7pm-9pm.
