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.)

All our ladybirds and lacewings have new summer quarters thanks to Lucy King's lovely Bug House making session this week. For those who missed it, the recipe:

Cut the middle from a plastic bottle. Fill it with interesting sticks. Tie with twine and make a loop to hang it up. Fling it around the woods a few times and get your mummy to put it all back together. Take home and enjoy.

Thanks Lucy!

P.S If you can help out at the Summer Fair please get in touch with me a s a p. This is all about promoting West Bank Park and getting people interested in its future, so you will be helping the park as well as us!
