It was great to celebrate the coming of Spring at Windmill this Wednesday. We hosted Bilborough Family Centre to help them discover the joys of the season. The volunteers came out in force to help families to enjoy lots of different activities.
In the orchard, Carrie helped our visitors to make nests and art using natural materials, as well as advising what to do if you find a chick out of the nest.

In the polytunnel, Chris and Mark organised planting peas in gutters and making bird feeders out of plastic bottles.

The clay oven was running, with Tracey and Matt helping everyone to make "bunny buns" which were delicious - with cheese or butter and our own home-made jam.
|First wash your hands - the tip tap worked well.|

Pete and Andrew helped everyone to find hidden egg pictures with activity ideas to try on the back of them and later hid egg tokens to swap for chocolate!
