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

Feeling fruity in the forest....

We had a citrus sensation in the park this week with crates of oranges and the tale of the Belfast dock boy who found that stealing fruit can be rather un a peeling if you are caught. (You'll get the joke if you came along!). After hunting down their oranges in the Story Tree, the children stabbed them with cloves and tied ribbons round them to make traditional pomanders and after an admirable attempt at remembering the words to "Oranges and Lemons", we all sat down for story time with Lara Mclure, Huge thanks to her for such a wonderful treat and to everyone for whom murky skies and spitting rain are no barrier to coming along for wild woodland fun!

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