THE beer gardens of two popular pubs are set to be transformed as mini wild meadows are introduced especially for Mothering Sunday.
Children young and old will get the chance to hand pick a selection of the seasonal blooms before wrapping them in tissue paper for their mums.
The initiative is for customers of The Sun in Ulverston and The Commodore in Grange-over-Sands, both of which are owned by Lakeland Inns.
Managing director Kirsty Mackenzie said she wanted to help make the day a memorable one for customers by doing something a little different.
She added: “We are always looking for new ways to give our customers a little extra and thought this would be a way of brightening up every mum’s day.
“On Sunday March 22 we will celebrate all mums and the role they play in family life. As the mother of twins, I appreciate now more than ever that, while being a mum brings with it so much joy and pleasure, it is also very hard work!
“That makes me appreciate my own mum, and everything she did for me, so much more. I'm really looking forward to seeing children picking their own bunches of flowers from our mini wild meadows.
Lucky mums will get a complimentary glass of fizz when they arrive for their special meal at any of the three pubs.
Lakeland Inns is run by husband and wife team Kirsty and Scott Mackenzie. The company recently added The Royal Oak at Spark Bridge to its portfolio of properties and it reopened in February, much to the delight of local residents.
Stringers Brewery is also owned by Lakeland Inns. Ales brewed from its 100% renewably powered brew house are sold across the north west.
