    The fabulous annual Winter Festival is coming to Lymefield Garden Centre, Tea Room & Farm Shop in Broadbottom later this month.
Held in the Garden Centre, the festival will showcase home- made bakes and winter warmer hot dishes from Lymefield’s kitchen, locally-reared meats from their butcher’s counter, de- licious foods from their deli and guest food and drink stalls. Lymefield Christmas pudding and mince pies - all washed down with local ales from the bar, mulled wine and hot choc- olate; along with live music with Hattersely Brass Band and local musicians will keep the atmos- phere rocking.
You can make a start on your Christmas preparations. A helpful team will be on hand with personally made Christmas hampers (for those tricky ones to buy for) and Christmas Food order forms from the Butchers and Farm Shop (it is never too early to get those meat orders in).
It will be the start to the Christ- mas Tree Festival, where local groups will have individually decorated trees. Along with beautiful Christmas decorations, there will be real Christmas Tree on sale.
All are invited to come and get festive and enjoy the Christ- mas cheer. So, get the date in the diary before the Christmas madness takes over and make a start on the inevitable ‘Big Shop!’ With Lymefield Garden Centre celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, the festival is sure to be bigger and better than ever!
The family-run centre is on the footprint of the original Lymefield Farm buildings where the Pryce family started to farm over 80 years ago. Brothers Robert and David Pryce now run Lymefield, however some local residents remember the original dairy farm and their father and grandpar- ents delivering milk by horse and cart! To keep their family business in the village in which they have grown up in, the family established a horticultural nursery with a small poly tunnel in 1990 before diversifying into the garden centre you see today Lymefield continues to introduce fresh and exciting ideas, which was recognised at the Country- side Alliance Awards, otherwise known as the ‘Rural Oscars’, earlier this year. Lymefield received a Commendation at the awards and was also the North of England finalist in the Rural Enterprise category. The next big project at Lymefield is the extension of the Farm Shop and Tea Room to provide customers with a more comfortable dining experience and a spacious envi- ronment to browse.
Lymefield also maintains a vital role in the local community. They have hosted initiatives which have helped charities and organisations such as Reuben’s Retreat, Comic Relief, When You Wish Upon a Star and Macmillan.
Get yourself down to Lymefield and see their great work for yourself.
The Winter Festival is on Satur- day 24th November from 11am- 4pm and everyone is welcome.
