FOR some, the best Christmas shopping is from the petrol stations on Christmas Eve at 11pm. It focuses the mind, even if the gift selection is a bit limited.
But for those who like to give Santa more time to choose, a Wokingham-based garden centre is looking forward to opening its doors during November for some first noels.
Squire’s garden centre, based on Healthlands Road, is holding the event over two sittings: 5.30pm and 6.45pm, every Thursday next month.
Entry has to be booked in advance and costs £10, but is redeemable against purchases on the night.
And there’s a 15% discount for purchases.
If you visited last year, you’ll know that there is a selection of decorations, gifts and food to browse.
It’s not all shopping– live number and surprises will be available.
It will all be under Covid-safe measures.
And it certainly beats receiving a bottle of motoring oil and a petrol-scented flowers on the big day.
