Saturday and the sun shone for Forest School for All.
Around 60 people joined us to work together to build a beautiful new den, woodland chimes, a weaving station and a climbing frame for our forest school site….as well as making sure it was cleared of brambles and that plenty of wood is chopped and stacked for the winter months ahead.
It also provided a chance for people to meet, kids to play and create dreamcatchers and practice knot tying and for everyone to enjoy a lovely relaxing time – helped by hot drinks and sweet treats.
A big thank you to everyone attended and worked hard. You raised £100 for preschool. We’re a charity and rely on fundraising like this to give our kids such a special experience.
If you missed this one or fancy doing it all over again, come along and join us for our next Forest School for All event on 5th December.
Forest school for All
Open to literally everyone in the world!
This is a playgroup fundraiser, so please spread the word.
Playgroup will not be responsible for any child attending. Children will need to be accompanied by an adult.
Date: 10th October at 10-1300hrs.
Cost: £5 per family plus donations for tea and coffee.
The Plan: Meet at the Grindleford Pavilion, dressed ready for action! We’ll aim to rebuild one of the big dens. Please bring bow saws and loppers.
Hope to see you there 🙂
We hosted the forest school session at the Longshaw Wild Wood Experience and what an experience it was!
8lbs of bread dough, 20 pints of pea and nettle soup, 4 sacks of logs, 2 bags of marshmallows and 1 pint of cream….and more giggles, smiles and happy people than could be counted.
Many visitors spent quite a lot of time at the site having a go at bread making, butter churning, fire starting, animal disk making, playing on the seesaw or just enjoying some quiet time under the gazebo reading and colouring.
We were voted the best attraction on the day!
Thanks to the National Trust and to all our staff and helpers for making the day so wonderful and for raising funds for Grindleford and Eyam Playgroup.
