Thanks for the help Debbie :-)

Thanks Debbie for your help Friday volunteering!

Summer playscheme- final Friday of the holidays

What a fantastically bonkers creative session!

Eight families came along and put colour and nature on the walls of the community garden. So much enthusiasm from so many different ages of children and adults many of whom we met for the first time today.

The energy and enjoyment was sooooo good that we've decided add 4 extra mural sessions during September, supported through volunteering to make this space and opportunity the best we can and continue our connections with lots of new families from within our local area :-)

Family Playscheme update

The results of family activities today were........stencils! for the garden mural ready for next week.

It was just a little rainy at the beginning of the session, so we played and made inside instead. New families and older ones all having fun.

Drawing, colouring, cutting out, running, ball games and shouting at the top of our voices to fill the hall space. A fun session today :-)
