Children are being invited to celebrate the start of spring at a free arts and craft afternoon in Arnot Hill Park, Arnold.
Parents and their children can visit the Civic Centre on Saturday, April 9 to enjoy a range of activities, organised by Gedling Borough Council and Gedling Play Forum, free of charge.
They can get involved with various crafts, including fabric printing on hats, helping to decorate the mini theatre and making clay bugs and beasties.
Kids can release their musical side at a drumming workshop or try their hand at first aid on teddies with Gedling’s St John Ambulance Badgers. There will also be a SEN chill out zone where children can relax.
Portfolio Holder for Community Development, Councillor Kathryn Fox said: “As a council we’re proud to continue working with Gedling Play Forum to host free children’s events in our borough. These sessions inspire children’s creativity, which is important for their development and overall wellbeing. It’s also a fantastic opportunity to meet other local families, so I encourage parents to book a place.”
There are two afternoon slots to choose from, 1-2.30pm or 3-5pm. Booking is essential as places are limited, please visit www.gedling.gov.uk/spring to avoid disappointment. Parents must be in attendance at all times.
