The Connect and Play Summer Party at Whitley GrowAllot today was fab!! The sun was out and we had 35 children plus their parents or carers, all from the local area. There were 11 members from RFC in their BRIGHT yellow Love Reading T-Shirts coordinating all the fun. Activities including Face Painting, Making bird Feeders, Scavenger and Bug Hunts, a Mud Kitchen, Human Fruit Machine, Planting Cress, Water Play and Painting Butterflies. The event was held at Whitley GrowAllot, a community allotment supported by Food4Families where local people grow their own fruit and vegetables, and share their produce.
