National Play Day ~ Wednesday 5th August
The day is to celebrate children’s right to play, a national organised event that encourages projects across the UK to run mini or massive events in order to celebrate. We have registered the event with http://www.playday.org.uk/ and will be hosting a celebration in Crowcombe. It will be aimed at families and children with a range of activities on offer to suit all, with this year’s national theme as Make time for play!
Through popular demand I have looked at ways I can offer party bags with the Woodland Parties without compromising our ethos. I am pleased to announce that we now have small jute bags that can be purchased as Eco-Party Bags; the contents can vary & can be filled yourself. The bags can be re-used ~ re-used ~ re-used,
are climate neutral and can be yours at a small cost!!
Again, through requests I have explored the idea of providing home-made party cakes; either individual BUG BALL cakes and CUP CAKES and/or a full sized WOODLAND CAKE (various options of design). All these cakes are home crafted using the best local ingredients (including eggs from Puddies chickens), special diets can be catered for.
A final reminder
Of the projects we offer ~ Woodland Playschemes, Woodland Parties, Woodland Educational Days, Woodland Adventure Days and Professional Training for those adults who work with children & young people. See the website for further details.
