Come and join us!

Come and join us for the first Growing Gang of the year, on Saturday 24th February, 10.30am-12 noon on our field in Ovington.

It’s the start of a brand new season for our Growing Gang!  Following the success of last year’s Lottery supported experiment, we want to continue and expand activities for children and young people.  A group of parents and volunteers have devised a fantastic programme for the coming year all about growing, wildlife and our environment.  We’ve got loads of ideas and we’re sure our Gang members can think of plenty more!

This month we are planting onions and making some bird seed cake to help our feathered friends before Spring.

It’s outdoors based and goes ahead whatever the weather, so each child is asked to bring an adult, along with their wellies and warm (old) clothes, that they don’t mind getting muddy!  We are planning 2 short activities per session, focussed around the Growing Gangs’ own space, which this year will be developed to include raised beds.

We would love to see you – if you haven’t been before, come along and see what it is all about. Bring your friends – everyone is welcome in our Gang!
