DID you know it's only 80 days until Christmas? It seems one Wychbold garden centre does - even if they're skating on thin ice with it still only being October.

Webbs of Wychbold will soon be skating on proper ice, though - with the launch of its popular annual festive ice rink.

The centre launched its festive celebrations this week, featuring thousands of Christmas tree lights and decorations.

Then, from November 2 through to Sunday, January 5, its 'Real Ice Rink' returns and will be open seven days a week.

Bromsgrove Advertiser:

Each session runs for 45 minutes and there are skate aids, children’s skates and wheelchair access.

Additionally, Father Christmas, his elves and reindeer will pay the garden centre a visit at 10am on Saturday, November 9.

Tickets priced £10.50 for children and £2.50 for adults are now on sale for the enchanted Grotto and winter wonderland, which features Father Christmas’s cosy cottage and a toy warehouse.

Tickets for all the above can be booked via Webbs' website.
