From gardening workshops to Mother’s Day poetry: What’s on this week

Mother’s Day drawings by Esmae Palmer

Spring has officially begun! Take advantage of the warm weather by getting out and about this week.

There’s music, theatre and more, all happening in our areas this week.

And if you’re in need of something thoughtful and creative to replace the artwork that usually comes home with your little ones from school this time of year, our evergreen Mother’s Day colouring in printouts are a brilliant way to show your appreciation for your spouse from you and the kids.

Simply download them from our Twitter link here and have the children colour them in for their Mums; or fold in half to make a special card.
