If the snow gave you that festive feeling, we invite you to join us on the Orchard to make your own decorations at our Community Open Day, or relax by the fire at our Family session and Adventure Play on 22nd December. Details of all those events and more can be found below.
We also wanted to thank you for supporting our work over the last twelve months by coming to our events and spreading the word about what we do. We couldn’t have done it without you, and it’s a privilege to share these amazing green spaces with you.
Merry Christmas from all at STAA ❄️
