Life under lockdown
History in the making
There will be a permanent set of pages on this website to record our activities and life during the COVID 19 lockdown.
This weeks focus is on the young people of the village, their own pictures, stories, activities and understanding of a situation that has made life very different from the usual routine. We'd love to record their contributions and you can find suggestions for themes and activities with this link. Young People in Lockdown
Filling the village with sunshine
From towering giant sunflowers to dwarf varieties grown in pots we've all got room for a little sunshine in our lives. There are so many varieties of sunflower, attracting pollinators whilst in bloom and then left in the autumn for the birds to snack on.
Help us fill the village with sunshine this summer by helping yourself to the tub of community sunflower seeds in the Church gate community larder. A great activity for young and old alike, it definitely ticks a lesson box for home schoolers!
Growing guide, lesson resources plus links for buying sunflower seeds.
