Look lively for local Spring market

CRESS Pavilion Ipswich

Live music will kick off the first spring market of the year at the CRESS Pavilion Ipswich, Halifax Road, Ipswich IP2 8RE, on Friday 17th March 10am to 12.30pm – marking St Patrick’s Day.

Fresh produce, plot-ready seedlings and Mother’s Day gifts will be part of the offering, and to keep with the theme, you can pick up a pot of clover to help bees and butterflies in your garden – you may be lucky enough to get a four-leaved one!

It’s not just insects we’re out to help at ActivGardens: Suffolk Wildlife Trust’s Hedgehog Officer Ali North will also be on hand to give you advice on how to improve hedgehog habitat in your garden.

Community garden volunteers will be hosting a new-look café – so relax with a cuppa and enjoy a homemade cake ….or two.
