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

Woodland soup and worm hunting - all washed down with some magical bubbles and Ruth's incredible cake. A lovely session this week, made all the more memorable with another set of heart-stopping photos from Elly Ross.

How to make Woodland Soup:

Grab a bucket. Fill it with cabbage (leaves) carrots (fir cones), herbs (random weeds), peas (beech nuts) and plenty of gravy. (mud). Add the finest stock (water), stir (a lot), chant, sing, fling it around the woods and spoon it into baking trays. (actual baking trays or old plastic pots). Cook in the oven (on a log) and...enjoy....

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