  1. New Year's Day - Wellie Walk

    1st January 2018


    Come and joing us on New Year's Day for a walk in your wellies.

    We will meet at the Rooksdown Community Centre. Everyone will be given two wooden stars to write their NY resolution or a memory from 2017.

    We will then walk to The Spinney where we will hang one star in a tree, walk back to the Community Centre for a hot drink and then take the other star home to remember what we did.

    We will be asking for a donation towards BBC Children in Need.

    No need to book just come along! All ages welcome.

    Just remember your wellies and warm clothing.
