Festive drinks and craft activities on offer at the Ninesprings Café

Relax this festive season at the Ninesprings Café and enjoy a range of two December specials to tempt you after that long walk or tiring Christmas shopping trip.

You can try an intense toasted marshmallow hot chocolate or English toffee latte; they go well with a tiramisu slice, cinnamon swirl, gingerbread muffin or of course a mince pie. This year we have a range of Christmas sandwiches including pigs in blankets and also turkey and cranberry.

If you need a walk afterwards, Countryside Ranger Kristy Davies suggests the Victorian Valley Gardens of Ninesprings. The winding paths and majestic trees make for a fantastic destination for a wintery wander this Christmas. With all the restoration work that has taken place so far this winter, to open up the springs and grottos, it is a really magical place and great for a family outing.

If you enjoy crafty activities then drop in to see Community Ranger Becky on Monday 19 December when she will be running short Christmas craft activities between 9.30am - 11.30am. Or for younger pre-school children try the Christmas Saplings session on Thursday 8 December at 9.30am for stories and Christmassy activities. These session are free, no need to book, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Councillor Sylvia Seal, Portfolio Holder for Countryside said, "We like to bring that Christmas festive spirit to Yeovil Country Park and the Ninesprings Café. Enjoying a break from Christmas shopping is a must for most people and the range of drinks on offer at the Café sound delightful.

"Children relish making Christmas related craft items and the sessions which are funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund giving them the opportunity to enjoy the Christmas spirit, whilst also encouraging a love of nature".

The Café remains open over the festive period, closing only on Christmas day itself, any changes to our regular hours of 8-6 Mon to Fri and 8-5 Sat and Sun (all bank holiday days will be 10 - 4) will be regularly updated on Facebook "Ninesprings Café", or you can reach the Café  team on 07971  111947.

It's been a fabulous year down at the Ninesprings Café and the whole team are looking forward to welcoming you during this December Christmas festive season.
