News and Projects

Children's play area
Published:25th Mar 2018 by Carolyne Haynes

The Living Wagon that our amazing volunteers have created is now in the playground for the first time this year - and is being played in as this is being written! If you look back to earlier news items you can see the cart that we used as the base. This was bought with funds from the Tesco Bags of Help scheme. Our volunteers then built the rest. It is looking so sweet out there. All we need now is a very robust shetland pony (wood?) and some wooden furniture to go inside. A little kitchen would be great or maybe we should make an outside pretend cooking fire with log seats around it? It is the best part of the job being 6 years old again!
