Little people and scary stuff


This week I’ve been thinking about our youngest visitors a lot. We’ve had several Mini-Explorers visits, I had the pleasure of showing a family taking part in a Starting Out course around yesterday and tonight I will be talking to local childminders to let them know about what we do and ask them what they would like from us. If you’re a childminder, pre-school teacher, parent or grandparent you can leave me a comment if you have any suggestions.

And don’t forget you can drop into one of the Big Draw story sessions tomorrow 10.30-11.15. We’ll tell you some stories and then you can draw your own! It’s for children aged 2.5-5 and their carers and it’s free!

Of course, we haven’t forgotten about our other visitors. I’m just sorting out a visit for a group from the University of the Third Age and we’ve got lots of school workshops running. Some of the team are outside today setting a tracking challenge for children from Bearwood Primary School. Shame about the weather, but that’s the beauty of the outdoors, it definitely puts you in touch with nature!

We’ve got an Awesome Owls trail running all week, an Owl make and take activity on Tuesday and our resident witch will be in session at Scaplen’s Court on Wednesday making potions and telling stories. And the best thing is, this is all free. Take a look at our What’s On guide. Oh, and we’ll be opening late next Friday – do you dare to take a scary tour around the Old Town with the ghostly Granny Cousins!!
