The end of the summer

We've had a great summer in the parks, with brilliant weather most of the time.  The kids have all been brilliant, too, and, after joining in with all the games and fun each afternoon, they've helped to carry the play equipment to the van afterwards and clear up any rubbish left in the park. I've enjoyed meeting up with families who we've known over the years - someone, whose children are now grown up, came over and said she actually remembered us from way back, when there was only Sally and me running the park sessions together!  There's been lots of fun and laughter, but here are three little things that really made me smile:i) A little boy wanted to sing on 'the world's smallest stage' and the song he was desperate to sing was 'Jingle Bells'.  It was so stuck in his head that when Steve asked him what his name was, he burst out "Jingle!" and when Steve asked who was with him in the park, he again burst out "Jingle!". ii) Another little boy said he wanted to tell a joke and so…See More

Different kinds of good weather!

It's been lovely seeing families turning up in the parks in spite of the rain.  Although we haven't been able to get the large play equipment out of the van on a couple of days (because it gets too slippery for climbing on when it's wet), we have managed to do our usual dancing, games, arts and crafts, scavenger hunts, etc - and a few parachute games in between the showers.Children never seem to mind the rain - and we don't, either!  Providing the electrical equipment can be protected, we'll carry on playing.  As I left the park on Wednesday, with shiny wet face and hair like rats' tails,  I heard a girl saying to her mother, "That was FUN!" - and it was!What's that quote by John Ruskin? -'Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather'. 'See More

Windy Sunday!

Yesterday, we ran a little Family Fun Day on the village green at Elborough Village. The wind was blowing hard and it was horribly cold for June, but we received a lovely warm welcome from everyone, including the boys playing football there when we arrived.  One boy, aged about 10, came up and asked what music we would be playing during the afternoon and then asked if he could bring his own CD over to play.  I asked him who it was and he said Bob Marley!Children played on the large play equipment, did some arts and crafts activities (which included making some flying creatures - which flew very well on an afternoon like yesterday!), and watched a very traditional Punch and Judy show.  Some of the boys and girls who continued playing football with our sportsworker said afterwards that they had got to know some new children and talked about setting up a football team, so that was a great result.  I am wondering if I can include some portable pop-up football goals for Elborough in the…See More

Looking forward to attending both days of this year's music and dance festival in the park which surely ends Sunday 11th July 2010 not 2013?
Two great Bands - the Fallen Apples and RSVP closing the proceedings nightly!
