Community Creating

Our two villages have had a stressful week - we've been hit by the rains and storms that the rest of the UK has experienced, and also been hit by the threat of, (and in some cases the reality of) flooding and evacuation.  Add to this the work so many have put in manning the help desk phones, coordinating the army, the police, the fire & rescue staff, the RNLI crews and the village volunteers, and volunteering to man road blocks, cook meals for the volunteers and make endless cups of tea and coffee.

Stressful indeed!

So I hoped that it would be fun for them to come to Kids' Crafty Church for a bit of making this afternoon.

I think it was:  We had 10 families, 19 children, and lots of making.  The children particularly enjoyed making Thank You cards for the soldiers and other volunteers who "saved our village"

  7. I'm catching up on your blog backwards (can not seem to get it to stick in my feed reader), and just realized that you were in the flooding. So sorry, and hope things get back together soon. Glad you could help others.
