FOLLOWING the success of previous family fun events organised by LEAF (Locally Encouraging All to Flourish) Ledbury Churches, an event, ‘Signs of Spring’ will be held in the Forest School at Ledbury Primary School on Saturday 25 February 2023 10.30 am – 12.30 pm.

The event will be free of charge and include refreshments, hot chocolate, toasted brioche etc. around the fire. Children must be accompanied by adults.

Activities will be led by Becky Davis, a trained Forest School Leader, supported by LEAF volunteers.

There will be crafts using natural materials, BEE FUN to emphasise to children the importance of Bees, nature spot activity, mud kitchen, circle time and story round the campfire and lots more.

The theme will be around plants, fauna and wildlife waking up for spring and will encourage families to explore the wonder of nature. Above all this will be a great opportunity to come and have fun in the great outdoors.

The event is suitable for ages up to approximately 11 years.

There will be a baby/toddler corner but all of the activities are adaptable to the various ages.

Wear warm clothing, bring waterproofs and wellies you will probably get messy!

There will be some spare waterproof clothing if anyone forgets.

If the weather is poor please do not assume the event will not be taking place because we will have some shelter provision and as Becky says there is no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothes!

For more information contact Jill Jupp or 07531 311 991 at LEAF. (If your child/ren has/have any food allergies etc. please let us know in advance and we will do our best to cater).

The next planned event is ‘Mums the Word’ Saturday 18 March 2023 10.30 am – 12.30 pm, Ledbury Baptist Church, Homend, Ledbury. Make special surprises for mum, grandma, or someone you love for Mothers’ Day.
