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.)

For more information contact Elly at: westbankparkkids@gmail.com

New management!

It is with a bit of a tear in my eye that I tell you that it's time for me (Cath) to move on from leading this group!  I have gone and got a job that doesn't permit me to take Thursdays off any more.  But never fear as the group is mightily strong and a whole new team of people is going to help take over.  As for this blog - well, I've never been very reliable at keeping it up-to-date! - so may I introduce our new blogmeister (meistress?) Vicki. 

So you can look forward to lots more news of our doings, photographs of happy muddy children, and maybe - who knows? - the group will be part of the growing online community of those chipping away, ever so subtly, ever so practically, at Mr Gove's vision for toddlers in classrooms being tested on their triangles.  That would be a fine thing. 

For now - I'm over and out - welcome Vicki!
