Summer Holiday Clubs 2010

Another school year over and it’s time for the summer holiday clubs!
I love this time of year… lazy Saturday mornings, a real treat for me!
(no Pumpkin Patch!!)

Tuesday mornings however… a mad rush to prepare for the day’s events! The Holiday club is a relaxed mix of preparing lunch ….following a very relaxed continental breakfast of Spanish tostadas and hot chocolate.
A country walk to collect hedgerow fruit and ‘interesting’ country finds is usually followed by a tidy up in the garden a little painting to freshen the raised beds and some cookies from the mornings kitchen efforts!

The day usually goes so fast it’s hard to believe that 10 children have cooked, gardened and enjoyed the freedom of the outdoors… usually without a hitch!! Long may that continue!!

Adults join the Pumpkin Patch!!

At last!!! It’s been two and a half years since the first Pumpkin Patch workshop, and about two years since Mums ans Dads started asking for something similar for themselves! Last May saw the first Baking day, a day specialising bread making.
In June we had ‘the Supper Party’, giving hints and tips and ideas on how to throw a stress free supper party for friends. The next will be held in October and will no doubt be full of ideas for winter… to book a place for yourself a friend or a group of you……please call.
Pumpkin Patch workshops start back in early September, please ring to confirm your place. Classes are now available for both primary and secondary age as well as adults… so nobody needs to miss out!
