Who are the VYFWBP?

We are a friendly community group, run by parents, who meet every Thursday morning in West Bank Park, York. Whatever the weather, school hols included, we spend a couple of hours in the woods and meadows of the Park, doing nature games and crafts, building or making things with materials we find, telling stories and singing songs.

We are open to all - with a contribution of £1 a family (to cover basic equipment) - so if you want to join us, see you on Thursday at 10am at the statue of Queen Victoria, at the top of the Rose Walk. (Bring something simple to share at snack time.)

Events in the York Literature Festival at West Bank Park

This year West Bank Park has made its (to our knowledge) debut in the York Literature Festival with two events, a Spring Story Walk for adults and children, and 'Stories and Rhymes for Mad March Hares' for under-5s and carers. Both were on days of brilliant weather and were equally brilliantly attended - around 50 people each time trooping around the park listening to stories, poems (some real, some totally make-believe) from Anneliese Emmans Dean, Nettlefoot Kate (that's me!), Rosemary and Margaret from the 'big' Friends. See right for a few lovely photos.

We sometimes bow to her before we set off into the woods!
