Feast In The Forest – What a Wonderful Day!November 11th, 2013 | Posted by in ******** Uncategorized
The Woodland Discovery Centre ran a fantastic day at the start of the October Half Term; it was called Feast In The Forest and there were lots and lots of fun outdoor activities and stalls. Growtheatre was there running making sessions – check out the fab bogarts made with clay and things from the woods and wooden picture frames made by children and parents who came to visit our stall.
We have a huge THANK YOU to our Growtheatre Youth Theatre member Emily and her friend Alfie who worked all day with us! They arrived at 8.30 in the morning and helped set up, went to gather berries, nuts, leaves etc. from Eccalsall Woods, helped to run the making sessions. They was superb at teaching children and adults how to make bogarts and their positive, helpful and friendly manner put many people at ease and were encouraged to get their hands mucky and get creative! WELL DONE EMILY AND ALFIE, WHAT STARS!
We also ran drama workshops with our youth theatre members and visitors to Feast In the Forest – they were a lot of fun and had people laughing and smiling. Thank you to everyone who came and supported us! A great day was had by all.
