A lovely session today meeting rabbit, guinea pigs, scorpion, corn snake, bearded gecko, tortoise, millipedes and more! A great experience for the parklings and a big turnout of youngsters!
Last Saturday's Parklings Christmas Coffee Morning was a huge success - thanks to everyone who supported the event. A great fundraiser for Village Hall funds.
The Christmas post is in full flow now.. Parklings delivering around Kilnwick area until the 23rd December.
Unfortunately this weekends Parklings trip to TopHill Low Nature Reserve is cancelled (the Reserve is flooded).
Despite the rather inclement weather the parklings young and old gathered today to plant bulbs. From 3 years to 17 years old, we had the full spectrum of parklings today including our youngest Trustee who is 16 years old.
We planted bulbs at the Village Hall, Tibby Lane corner and The Park (1000 of them!).
We look forward to seeing them flowering soon. Well done Parklings!
18 children attended our Pottery painting event at the village hall. A fabulous evening with some super ideas and designs! WE look forward to seeing the glazed pieces!
A halloween party, fancy dress competition, trick or treating and a dance competition. We had a lot of fun!

Nearly 20 children from Kilnwick came to tonight's parklings gathering, plus other visitors. A super evening in a beautiful setting. A great start to the school holidays.
We had 19 young people (plus adults) attend our Parklings session today. We had a very productive session planting a new Village Hall planter with an evergreen shrub and annual plants. It looks very smart. We also cleared the old rotten planters away and made the ground level and re-seeded with grass seed.
After that, each Parkling created their own "Garden in a Tray" with decorations. We can't wait to see how they evolve as the grass and cress seeds grow! There were some fantastic RHS "Chelsea" inspired ideas.
After a cup of hot chocolate, we went and ran off some steam at The Park, before the heavens opened and we all dispersed to dry off!
