Mothering Sunday
A workshop was held on Saturday 13th March with Angie and Olivia helping the children to make posies and cards to give to their mothers. It was a lovely sunny afternoon and the village bunting fluttered in the breeze as the children busily created their masterpieces! Lots of lovely photographs of these on the Facebook page.
