Hi all,
Seedlings (children's) activities will include decorating splitty ceramic money boxes, cake and biscuit icing, jewellery and keyring making, drawing us new birthday card designs, scalextric, playchute, hula-hoops, two bouncy castles, kids tug of war (after the adults have had their turn) and even more...!
It's all provided by the club for free and they get to keep their creations so please come along and join in on Saturday.
If the weather isn't quite so good then rest assured most of the activities will be in the barn in the dry and warm. Bring a cup of tea or coffee in and 'watch' your kids (or join in) for a great excuse to escape the elements. If its nice then we'll have the doors open and make the most of the sunshine! We're looking forward to seeing you there!

This is another great benefit of being a member of the SSVC...add your children to your membership and they'll also get a card on their birthday and a mention on the Seedings magazine page too.
