Here PW Vicky tell us all about the fun

"Half Term was great fun event though it was dull rainy and cold! We started with a Pancake Party on Tuesday, 17 Adults and 17 children came along to enjoy a 'flipping (sorry) great time!  The children were really well behaved and had great fun having pancake flipping competitions, the winner flipped the pancake over 144 times!! The pancake picnic went down well with some very creative topping combinations! Squirty cream was a must!

On Wednesday we hosted a Valentine's Craft session and as the pancakes were so delicious we had more on the Valentines picnic along with some specially decorated heart cupcakes and  then decorated our own cupcakes to take home. ( some didn’t quite make it home and were scoffed before they had left the building!) 16 adults and 28 children joined us for our Valentine's event. 

On Thursday it was time for the Gruffalo party, 12 adults and 22 children joined us for   a picnic and a visit from the Gruffalo. The Gruffalo picnic was fun as we had scrambled snake sandwiches, Roasted fox, terrible tusks and terrible claws, orange eyes and owl ice-cream and snakes log pile house chocolate rolls! YUM!

Some brave dads also joined in the fun during their breaks and had a chance to have a chat over a coffee and cake.

We finished the week with our monthly Charity Cake sale, this month we supported CAFOD. The cake sale is always well supported and each month we support a different charity and get suggestions from recruits, trained ranks and other staff"
