We’ve just received the following message from Saskia: I have a partly dis-assembled cardboard toy castle. Hobbycraft, 91x91x81 cm. Already skilfully (?!) coloured in by my grandkids, but has a bit of play-life left in it for bored little ones (4-5 yrs?). I’m happy to drop it off in/near the village.

Fairies at Pump Hill?

I am reminded by Lucy M’s lovely suggestion that I have been dilatory in putting this on the blog.

This is a special invitation to the youngest members of our community.

Have you seen the fairy stools at Pump Hill Wood?  There are three little seats located in places where you can sit and look around to see if you can spot a fairy. Sometimes they dance in the sunbeams, or in a gentle rain. You can also sit here and see animals in the distance, insects, small birds and different kinds of flowers. You can also close your eyes and make a wish. This magical place is changing every day as Mother Nature has taken charge.

Note to parents . Please, for the next few months, keep children on the paths. We need to ensure that what is lurking below the loose soil can thrive as it comes through.In addition, brambles are starting to poke through. In the next week or so we will have to spray the nettles, so straying into the planted areas is not a good idea. We will as a matter of course advise everyone when this happens, through the blog and with gentle reminders at the two entrances.
