Businesses in Stockley Park have been preparing for Mother's Day with a spot of flower arranging courtesy of Sara Coke of Nurture Landscapes.

Sara gathered her 16 eager pupils during their lunchtime to create colourful spring arrangements.

The planted wicker baskets contained a vibrant mix of ivy, hyacinths and primulas.

Rachel Dean, Office Hardware Business Manager at Sharp Electronics, said: “This was my second flower arranging workshop – as a beginner I have really enjoyed putting together my flower basket.

I feel very lucky to have the opportunity to do workshops like this at Stockley Park, and I know my mum will be thrilled with her Mother’s Day gift!

Kiran Ghattaura, a creative artworker for Aspect Software, said: “I always enjoy flower arranging sessions with Sara – she’s a fantastic teacher and enthusiastic.

“The sessions are fun and rewarding and I come away with a result I’m proud of!”   

Ann Lewis, Lifestyle Manager for Stockley Park, said: “It’s great seeing people enjoying themselves at these workshops.

“My role allows me to organise events to create excitement, encourage creativity and build the community on Stockley Park.”   

Ann is now busy gearing up for the next fun event – an Easter Egg Hunt for employees and their families.

Children from a local nursery have been invited to take part too.
