Ten Parishes Holiday Club – Pancakes & Lent

It was ‘flipping’ good fun at Aythorpe Roding village hall on Tuesday 13th February as children from across the ten parishes joined together to discover the link between pancakes, Shrove Tuesday, Ash Wednesday and the period of Lent running up to Easter.

Children from Y1 up to Y6 measured, mixed and made pancakes … then ate them with various toppings.  They played giant floor games and team relay races, involving the inevitable pancake flipping and tasting fruits they hadn’t tried before.  They made cross decorations to stand in their windows and generally enjoyed sharing the morning together.

Our next big adventure will be just for the older children in Y5 and above.  After many years sitting in a box we are hoping to dust off the handbells and form a handbell ringing group.  Plans are in the early stages but we hope to offer some taster sessions during the Easter holidays.  More on this over the coming months.

Date for the summer:  Our main holiday club will be three days 14th – 16th  August concluding with an All Parishes service on Sunday 19th August.  The exact dates still need to be finalised but hold that week if you’d like to join us for more fun, games, crafts and other activities.
