Easter bunny breakfast at Solas Eco garden centre

Co-Owner John Carey joined us for an update on events so far this year : “We have recently accomplished a number of successful events that have been enjoyed by many people. Our garden course offered practical tips and knowledge for gardening enthusiasts, while our wildflower talk was an insightful exploration of local flora.

“Painting courses were also held which provided a fun and creative outlet for all ages. Meanwhile, community events brought together people from different backgrounds and interests, fostering a sense of togetherness and community spirit.

“All in all, Solas has been thriving in its efforts to offer enriching and engaging activities that appeal to a wide range of individuals.”
