ACTIVE ABBEY ADVENTURES FOR HALF-TERM FUNDAY
ACTIVE ABBEY ADVENTURES FOR HALF-TERM FUNDAY ON THE AFTERNOON OF TUESDAY 30TH MAY 12.30PM TO 5.00PM Come join the fun with HistoryWorks & ChYpPS & Abbey People and other play partners in half-term when we've designed an afternoon of "Active Abbey Adventures" including sports and making activities - kicking off with a FREE lunch and crafting table from 12.30 to 1.30pm at Barnwell Baptist Church CB5 8PJ on Tuesday 30th May!
FREE LUNCH, FREE ACTIVITIES AND FREE REFRESHMENTS! From 1.30.pm to 3.30pm at Dudley Road Rec you can meet the *star* attraction of Owls and Falcons and Eagles, live birds who will visit from 'The Raptor Foundation' and have been booked by Historyworks as an emblem of an active day! Five birds of prey will visit with their keepers, who will assist children and their families who wish to pet and feed the birds. They will be located in a tent at the Recreation Ground and the keepers will give displays of the birds of prey flying too. The birds of prey are not keen on barking dogs, so we ask families to leave their dogs at home! For those children keen to craft their own 'take home' bug or butterfly or bird of prey, Miriam and Edd from ChYpPS and Scrapstore will have a crafting table nearby too, outside if the weather is good, inside at the Church if wet or windy.
There will also be active ways to take flight, with Simon Wall from the Cambridge United Community Trust leading a parachute activity. In addition, from 1.30pm to 3.30pm for children and families keen to join in team sports there will be tennis and basketball and soccer and other games provided by the City Council's Street Games group - all on Dudley Road Rec.
