Morpeth's Secret Garden


April - Busy Bee Workshop

In April each year the Green is one of the venues for the Morpeth Gathering, a two-day celebration of traditional Northumbrian dance, music and fun and games.
There is story-telling in the Green and sometimes dancing and in the past the Trustees have run a bird and bat box making workshop for youngsters on the Saturday afternoon.
In 2014 it is on Saturday 26 April from 1 to 3pm and we will have a "busy bee" workshop. Children we be helped to build bee homes using materials provided for a small charge. The Alnwick Bee Keepers Association will demonstrate a hive with live bees and there will be a stall giving information about attracting bees into your garden. Bee friendly flower seeds will be on sale.

Our main event of the year is the Garden Fete. This is open to the public and shows offthe Green at its best in June. We run a very successful plant stall stocked by Trustees and Friends, a cake stall, a book/CD stall and a tombola. There are games and puzzles for children. Refreshments are laid on. The money raised helps to buy new plants for the Green.
In 2014 it is on 7 June, 11am to 2pm.
