Past Event – Park Mall Summer Garden Party

On Saturday 24th August, 10am-2pm, Park Mall became an amazing summer garden crafts hub with fun and educational ‘green’ crafts activities provided by Made in Ashford and Emporia. The Little Teapot was also selling delicious snacks, summer themed cupcakes and offered 25% off Lickalix ice lollies!

Families were able to enjoy all of these free activities:
– A Face Painter was at the event, giving beautiful summer designs

– Eco-Bricking workshop: visitors could bring waste plastics and bottles along to help us make eco-bricks!

– Flowers and Fabric Crafts: Little ones were able to make cool floral accessories using fabrics.

– Recycled Insect Hotels and Bird Feeders: Using recycled materials visitors could build their very own insect hotels and bird feeders to take home, helping them bring an ecosystem to life in their garden!

– Colouring Station

– Pose by the Park Mall flower wall for a #selfie!

– Play table tennis, giant chess or in the sand pit

– Enjoy a picnic on our lawn

– Take home a Park Mall wildflower seed pack to plant in your garden
