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

Fungus Humongous

Today our brave Young Friends came out in the pouring rain for a speical mushroom hunt in the woods. As well as a trail of paper mushrooms we found some amazing real ones growing. Armed with pocket guides the little guys worked hard to identify the fungus.

The most humongous find was a mushroom growning out of the story tree. There was a fairy door in the stalk and inside were presents for Vicki and Albie! Vicki has done such a craking job of running this group and the young friends are very grateful for all the fun Thursdays we've had with Vicki.

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