The Potting Shed.

As part of my volunteering last Saturday, I had the pleasure of taking two of my favourite children to the Potting Shed . What a fantastic place to spend a few hours! The staff there are so friendly and helpful, they made an enjoyable experience into a memorable one!
If you are ever stuck for something to do with your children and you live on the Wirral, give it a go and you won't regret it.

You select a piece of pottery, prices start at £7.50, and spend as much time as you like decorating it. You then leave your pot at the Potting Shed, where it is glazed and fired in the Kiln. You can then collect it the following week.

There is even a great little coffee shop, with cakes and other goodies to tempt both you and the kids, and all quite reasonably priced too!

I think it would also be a great idea for a kids party, there was one going on while we were there. A bit different than the usual bouncy castle or visit to Macdonalds!

I have now collected our pots and they look great, can't wait to give them to the children on Saturday!

That sounds great! I wish we had something like that here when my children were little. They would have loved doing this.

Dear Middle Ditch,
It really was great. I only stumbled on it by accident, when trying to think of somewhere to go! It gets more difficult when we get to winter, and outside activities become less attractive.

Hi David! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am getting settled and thanks to my aunt, I have an internet connection tonight. There is a "potting shed" about half an hour from me and I've always wanted to try it. I'll have to put it on my to do list for 2009! :)
