craft events –
beading, mask making, biscuit decorating, T-shirt painting, tile decorating, badge making, glass painting, encaustic art, Christmas crafts
outdoor events –
dog training, pavement art, BBQ, climbing tower,
steam train trip
Generally we don’t charge for the outdoor events (except BBQ). All expenses are covered by funding. Opportunity for lots of people to join in.
We do charge a nominal fee for indoor events as spaces are limited, we may need to buy materials, sometimes pay for teachers, and people are then committed.
Consent forms (including for photo’s) for all activities.
Advertising is done locally –
posters in local businesses (about 20)
flyers to scouts, brownies, sports clubs etc,
