Due to popular demand, Santa Paws returns to Hawley Garden Centre – We invite you to bring your dogs to visit Santa in his Grotto.

Hawley Garden Centre are proud to let everyone know that they are a ‘Dog Friendly’ Garden Centre, and have been for 13 or more years. We believe we are the first and only Garden Centre that has opened their Grotto to dogs.

In 2019 pooches came dressed to impress in a glorious array of festive jumpers, hats, sunglasses and coats. They were greeted by a friendly elf at the door where they were offered treats.

This year Santa will award them with a gift. Our doggies will be given rosettes saying ‘I’ve met Santa at Hawley Garden Centre’ for them to wear with pride.

Owners leaving the event were impressed, with many looking forward to next year’s experience. Most importantly by the number of wagging tails the dogs clearly found the experience enjoyable and unforgettable. Fancy coming this year?
You would be barking mad to miss it!

We will also have photographer on site ready to capture your magical experience at an extra charge.
