Updates from our Growing Space at Christ Church!
This October, we held our first series of Halloween half-term workshops. The workshops ran most afternoons and children (and parents!) enjoyed carving their own pumpkins, making scarecrow hats, scary pots, and brooms for Halloween!

Check out the pics below to see how much fun the children had at our pumpkin carving workshop!
Thank you to everyone who came to our first Halloween event. We are looking forward to organising more fun and exciting activities soon!
