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.)

Sunshine and showers, butterflies and flowers: a lovely morning knee deep (and shoulder deep for some) in the meadows and on the Rose Walk with Jen's mask making session, glitter and of course, our weekly check on the tadpoles.
Please put Sunday June 14th - 12pm onwards - in your diaries. Meet by the Rose Walk for picnic, play and gentle knitting and crochet in preparation for the big Yarn Bomb at the Fair on June 28th. No skill needed as we can teach you the basics, the more experienced can help us cover the trees in wool art! We are also looking for teddies and soft toys who may need new homes for our Fair tombola in aid of the Friends of West Bank Park please contact Lucy King: lucyking.king1@googlemail.com if you have any you can donate. Lastly, we REALLY need some volunteers for the Young Friends craft tent on June 28th from 1pm to 4pm. Even half an hour will be fantastic and you will have great fun - promise! Please contact Jen a s a p on the e mail above (top right).
