Passing Through and Settling

June Report

By Holly Rumble

On 23rd May I visited Scallywags Nursery. The children are making a walking trail for Girton, of all their favourite places, so I joined them for an hour’s walk between some of their locations. Of course a main feature was the playground, with swings being the most popular equipment, but we also took in the churchyard and the red telephone box, which was “for when you forget your phone!”

We have also just had the second meeting about the wall hanging project led by the WI. A number of participants have already started their sections, and we hope to show a few photographs of work in progress at the stall on 12th July. Katherine de Winter has finished her skylark (below), and is now on to a greenfinch!

I am in discussion with Girton Glebe, and the Youth Group to develop projects with them, and have just confirmed a temporary labyrinth in the Recreation Ground for the Autumn Equinox, thanks to Girton Parish Council.

The next public event is the Bird Drawing Challenge at the Family Fun Day on 12th July. I have a list of about 130 birds that have ever been spotted in Girton and I am asking visitors to choose one each to draw. The collection of drawings will be exhibited in October. I will provide the materials and pictures to refer to, so please just pop in and have a go.
