THEY say it’s the thought that counts and that’s what Bolton’s Market Place has got in mind for Mother’s Day.

Floristry shop Glassy Garden will host a free children’s craft event to celebrate the special day.

On Saturday, March 30, children are invited to adorn a plant pot with decorative accessories and fill them with fresh flowers and plants to give to the mother figure in their lives on Mother’s Day itself.

A luxurious gift box will also be provided for that extra special touch.

The event, which runs between 11am and 4pm, provides the perfect opportunity for children to get creative and make a truly personal gift for the special woman in their life for free.

Nikki Wilson-Cook, Market Place centre manager said: “We know how much mums appreciate gifts with a little thought and sentiment behind them, so we are delighted to be able to allow children to create a unique gift for their Mum this Mother’s Day.”

She added: “Market Place is the ideal place to create the perfect Mother’s Day, from present shopping to delicious dining.”
