Festive flower arranging

A FLORAL expert will be on hand to help people put together Christmas decorations at a wildlife reserve.

The Saltholme RSPB site near Hartlepool will hold a festive day of decorating on Thursday.

From 1.30pm to 3.30pm, visitors can create their own festive table arrangement using natural materials, and with a helping hand from floral expert Valda Walker.

It is also a chance for people to enjoy tea, coffee and scones afterwards.

Visitors will be provided with everything they need for the decorating workshop and that includes materials, hot drinks and treats.

Advance booking is essential for the workshop and it costs £12 or £8 for members.
