"35 children turned up on Sunday 29th October for our Autumn Nature Club. The weather was perfect for our nature trail through the Chestnut trees and into Chalet Wood.
Children enjoyed squirrelling away nuts and finding them again, as well as doing bark rubbings, making stick skeletons and playing with their friends in the woods. They collected autumn leaves, twigs and nuts.
After the nature trail we hosted a crafts session in the Temple where the children turned their collections into a collage and made autumnal cards and leaf rubbings. And finally, we settled down to stories and children helped our story teller act out some of the scenes. A great time was had by all, new friendships made, and we came away with lots of great new ideas for helping our children explore and enjoy their natural environment.
These sessions are run by a group of local parents who wanted to see more activities for children in the park. We're so pleased at how popular they are and can't wait until our Christmas event on 17 December and Winter Nature Club on Sunday 28th January. We hope to see you there!"
