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.)

Wintery Days

The cold days are here and it seems to have done nothing but rain the last few weeks. That hasn't put off our Young Friends who have been out in the park every week and keeping dry under the story tree.

On the 5th of November we had our fire bowl out and loved watching popcorn pop in the pan while we all waved sparklers. 

Last week we began the festive season by making slippers to leave out for St Nick. And guess what? He filled them with goodies while we sang songs!

Join us next week for a magical Christmas Tree hunt and snowflake pancakes.

If you are still looking for presents for your little explorer the Young Friends highly recommend Collins Gem nature books.

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