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.)

Super furry animals took over the park this week with the wonderful Alex and her huge pile of costumes. Despite near tropical temperatures, no one wanted to disrobe at the end, with one small teddy bear (sorry, Grizzly Bear) last seen padding off to the swings still in full bear garb....

The summer fair was also a roaring success with around £700 in donations and profit - some of which will go towards the Big Pond Pot. For those who don't know, we're putting the last of our Young Friends kitty towards renovating this at the end of the year - making it bigger, waterproof at last and more child-friendly (no more slippery sides!). If you happen to know any mini digger drivers, suppliers of pond liner or would like to help us out when we start work - please get in touch!

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