Lanterns this Sunday … cancelled

*Heads UP* Really sorry , but due to the predicted bad weather over the next few days, we have reluctantly CANCELLED the lantern event this coming Sunday 10th DECEMBER.

We are all so sorry to disappoint people, we, Castle Bromwich singers, Glorishears of Brummagem and all the volunteers here are really sad we cannot entertain the public on that day. The mushroom lanterns have also taken a bit of battering by Storm Caroline.

We will be preparing as usual for the Lantern Parade event on SATURDAY 16th DECEMBER …. ya’ll come!

(If you had friends who were planning to come this Sunday, please help us reach them, by letting them know. Many thanks)

Family Friendly volunteering in the Gardens

Unplug and Play! Our school holiday programme  for families to get outside, together in a safe and creative place. Suddenly the Back Garden grew… to 10acres!

 Want to try out your work skills? Why not volunteer with us.

*We’re looking right now for volunteers for February half term, Easter and summer holidays  apply now to find out how you can make a difference*

We can help you grow and practice your creative, early years, youth work, woodland and gardening skills.

Storytime, crafts, learning to knit, mud kitchens, land art and wildlife activities, we’ve got them all.

You can have a great time helping young people grow – just few hours will make a difference.

We want young children and their grown-ups to find our Gardens a place to get outside, enjoy making and creating, run around and sometimes just be peaceful.

Can you help us support them?

Families can use the Gardens 7 days a week but on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays during school holidays, from 12-3pm, we run extra sessions.

Ways you can help:

  • Perhaps help us run story time in the Maze?
  • Help us with simple craft activities – frogs from cardboard tubes, recycling milk cartons into wind catchers?
  • Be part of the giant recycled knit-knot tent made from strips of material and French knitting ‘ropes’.
  • Garden alongside our junior gardeners?

You don’t have to be an expert, we can show you how to do things.

As well as the sessions we need people to prepare and tidy up – put away the books and cushions, set out the croquet on the lawn, collect the doodles and pin them to the artline.. gather recycled materials ….

Let us know if you have some time- or know of others who’d like to help out. You don’t need to commit to the whole summer, just a few hours of your time can make a big difference.
