climbingwalleditThanks to all the children (and parents) who came to the Wye Children’s Fayre yesterday and helped to make it such a success.

It was obviously hard work and dull to have to climb climbing walls and go on the bungee run and bouncy castles – but aside from that dull stuff —

In total, 125 children filled in forms with their ideas on how the charity should spend its money. Ideas included skate park (very popular), chocolate factory (inspired) to large multi-coloured slide.. (a sixties child?) Several children also signed up for future activities based around craft, cooking, film, fishing and drama.

The organisers of the Neighbourhood Plan also took the opportunity to gauge children’s opinion about how life in the village could be improved. (And none of them mentioned the level-crossing!)

We also received £51 in donations from people who don’t live in the parish.

IMAG0521The Children’s Playing Field Advisory Group will meet in the next few weeks to review the event and consider how to take things forward.

It could be that we might plan a similar event for next year so if anyone has any ideas for improvements, it might be an idea to jot them down now while they’re fresh in your mind. Please send them to me via this blog or jasper.bouverie (at)
