Playing, painting and dipping
Using the final part of their grant from Community Spaces, the members of Bucks Just Play were able to invite children of pre-school and primary school age to come along to the Old Buckenham Play Area this afternoon. Despite a very cold east wind blowing across the Green, the sun did come out and many children, accompanied by mums, dads and grandparents, came along to take part in the entertainment.
The play area equipment was being well used and members of the Norfolk Wildlife Trust were there with various hands-on activities including pond dipping and seed planting.
Things were warmer in the nearby Church Rooms where refreshments were available for both the children and grown ups and many children queued up to have their faces painted in attractive designs.
Thanks to the grant money, all this was totally free to the participants who were able to have an invigorating and educational afternoon.
