Situated opposite our new outdoor children's area, surrounded by woodland trees and our very own plant area at Pugh's Garden Village Wenvoe will soon be the newest structural addition to the village; Pugh’s Woodland Lodge! A robust log cabin with an envious inside and outside space to facilitate a variety of workshops for all groups of people big and small.
With the evolution of our successful ‘Little Green Fingers’ children’s workshops, 'Little Green Schools', Little Seedlings Toddler Groups and 'Green Fingers' Adult Workshops in Pugh's Radyr and the recent developments of our outside area in Wenvoe with our Orange Tree Cafe/Restaurant and Children's Outdoor Play Area, it has made perfect sense to create a permanent workshop facility in Wenvoe too so that we are able to branch out in all directions, meeting the requirements of our customers by offering lots more workshops for all ages!
Headed up by our wonderful Woodland Lodge Rangers, Catherine and Elaine, this new facility is the start of something really exciting at Pugh's Garden Village Wenvoe. Not only does it mean we can offer more ‘Little Green Fingers’ workshops during school holidays but also allows us to reach out to local School groups in the Vale of Glamorgan area to run outdoor classrooms and tailored educational visits so children can really be at one with nature and enjoy the benefits of learning about the great outdoors! We'll also be running adult horticultural workshops and our Little Seedlings toddler groups.
With over 60 years of horticultural experience, the Pugh family are extremely passionate about educating customers on their outside space. The Woodland Lodge will enable us to go back to our roots and the heart of the business, gardening. It’ll enable us to communicate on a whole new level with generations of families through education and creativity.
Here are some pictures of when the build was under way:
The Woodland Lodge opened it's doors for the first time at the first of our Summer Holiday Workshops this week. Here's what one of our first ever visitors had to say:
"Attended the children’s work shop today. My little one thoroughly enjoyed it. He got to colour dinosaurs and decorated his own mug to take home. The set up was great, lovely workshop. Even my older son got involved. The girls there were so lovely and great with my little one. Give him all the time he needed to colour and decorate mug. Such good value for money. The little play area out side is great and we will definitely be attending more work shops over the next few weeks and try out the food in “The Orange Tree” it looks gorgeous. Also a great reward card where you attend 3 work shops you get your next free."
