caw logo**The closing date for applications has passed. However, there are still some places avaiable - see the details below about how to apply**

Summer activities for local children, based at Semley School, have been organised each year since 1998. Main aims are to educate children in a fun way, in a Christian, caring environment, with much emphasis on team work. The programme, much of which will be to a ‘Farming’ theme, will run from Monday 31st July to Thursday 3rd August inclusive. There will be places for fifty-five children who, to be eligible, must live in St. Bartholomew’s Benefice or attend either Semley or Ludwell Schools. Children may apply if they are 5 or over and no older than 11 on 31st August 2017.

cowsFour days of activities will be provided, to include: cooking (including pizza making), painting (including boxes for the pizzas), craftwork, and exercises. Also in keeping with our farming theme, we will visit at least two farms, during which the children will learn about various farming activities such as milking and milk pasteurisation; we also hope to have a sausage-making demonstration. Our three regular, professional leaders will be back with us: Geoff Gardner will teach us circus skills; and Nick Crump and Lizzie Bryant will help the children make farming-related items to take home; Lizzie usually has an interesting story to tell as well.
