WHAT'S BEEN HAPPENING AT KNIGHTS


PLANTING FOR THE FUTURE


Reception class children from Warlingham Village Primary School paid Knights Chelsham a visit recently to learn about planting seeds - and take part in a centre-wide treasure hunt.


More than 30 children turned up with teachers and parents to be shown how to plant sunflower seeds by our plants expert, Chris Coomber, and try and find a range of flowers, herbs and garden-related items dotted about the centre.


Teacher Helen Swallow said: 'The children really enjoyed themselves and the tasks were just at the right level for them. We look forward to coming back next year."

BAKE-OFF FOR SPORT RELIEF

 


Staff at our centres in Chelsham and Woldingham marked the recent Sport Relief day by baking cakes for our customers.


Thanks to them, and those customers who took advantage of the treats on offer, we raised almost £180 for the charity.

SPRING ART COMPETITION WINNERS

 

Winners of our Spring Flower Art Competition gathered at the Dene Restaurant in Woldingham to receive their prizes from Mrs Joyce Knight, the wife of Knights’ owner, Mr David Knight, and the Chelsham centre manager, Frank Holland.
