THE COMMANDERY’s gardens will open for free for residents seeking a breath of fresh air, a walk and a coffee at Easter, with a Family Fun Fitness Trail encouraging little legs to let off steam.
From Friday (April 2) to April 18, the trails will offer tasks to complete for budding explorers who need a change of scenery. With a trail happening on Fort Royal Hill organised by Friends of Fort Royal Park over the same period, it is in the ideal location for a local outing with your household, a solitary stroll or some exercise with a friend.
Commandery Coffee will continue to offer delicious take-away drinks, cakes and snacks from 10am each day, and will have outdoor seating available from April 12 onwards.
There is no need to book, but the museum will be following all Government guidance and there may be limits to visitor numbers that mean a short wait at busy times to ensure everyone’s safety.
In line with national guidance, groups should be limited to six people or two households.
Vice-chairman of the Joint Museums Committee, Coun Mike Johnson said: “We are really pleased to be able to open the gardens at The Commandery for local residents this Easter.
“Fresh air and exercise is important for people’s well-being and it’s a beautiful spot for wandering and exploring. We do ask visitors to respect our communities, staff and each other and only travel to The Commandery if you live locally.”
In May, those local to The Commandery can look forward to a Mini Golf day, which is back on bank holiday May 3 in The Commandery gardens, after its popularity last year.
