We now have more details of the activities that will take place during the 24 hour Bioblitz on Friday and Saturday this week and how YOU can get involved. Whether it’s by bringing pictures or specimens on unknown species for identification; providing data on the flora and fauna in your garden; or taking part in one of the guided walks, there’s loads going on to interest children and adults alike.
See all the details by clicking here. See you in the marquee on Friday and Saturday.
One of the features of Chudfest that we are most proud of is that we put on a number of free events during the week, especially for the youngest members of the community. This year, this includes the Superheroes Party and Messy Church.
And on the Tuesday afternoon, there’s a treat in store for years 4 and 5 at the Primary School:
Fast forward to the last evening of the Chudfest calendar: you can pop along to the Parish Church and let your ears be delighted by an evening of music from 7pm. This concert celebrates all styles of music and is organised by Ellie Rowles.
The evening is free, but donations are invited in aid of mental health awareness and MIND. What a wonderful finish for our week of fun! Get all the details by clicking here.
If your Superhero has enough whizz! and pow! left in them after the Superhero party, why don’t you stay put in the marquee for an activity session with Christian Story Teller Alexa Tewkesbury, hosted by Messy Church? And this isn’t just for pre-schoolers; the bigger kids are welcome too.
With free entry, the afternoon will be messy and fun and informative! Messy Church is running from 3.30 pm to 5:30 pm on Thursday 7th July. You can find full details by clicking here.
HELP! Help! Save me! Are you a parent to a Superhero? If so, they might want to join forces on Thursday July 7 and come dressed up in their shiniest costumes for a “bring your own” picnic for pre-schoolers at the Marquee and enjoy the hilarity provided by Kiddies’ Entertainer, Hat McKool.
And there’s nothing wrong with a 5′ 8″ forty-year-old dressed as Wonder-woman, so secret parent superheroes, don’t be afraid to don a cape either! Wear your costumes and join in the laughter from 1pm to 3pm! You can find all the details by clicking here.
Sunday 3rd July sees our community summer service being held in the marquee from 10:30am. Music, worship and prayer and community are celebrated, led by members of the Baptist and Parish Church congregations. The service, which lasts around an hour, will be followed by refreshments. Everybody Welcome!
The brochures have been printed; we’ve collected them; stuffed the flyers in them (thanks, team); and Tom has loaded them into his car. In fact, the first few are being delivered as I type. (If you hear something coming through your letterbox as you read this, it could well be your copy.)
And if you prefer your information electronically, you can find a link to the full brochure on the Summer Festival page.
