This last half-term holiday we took our Family Event into Charlton House and joined in with a children’s event being held there.
The Long Gallery was full of children making haunted houses from boxes and listening to stories organised by The Royal Greenwich Heritage Trust, which manages Charlton House.
Charlton Community Garden’s contribution was helping children to decorate pots, plant them with bulbs
and finish them off with a brightly patterned fabric cover. This proved to be a very popular activity; so too making a spider from wood, and wire. So popular was this that all the spider parts had been used before the end of the session. We are very sorry that some of you were unable to take home your own spider.
For this years autumn half-term Family Learning Activity we are moving out of our usual venue, and joining in with some other activities at Charlton House.
Please join us
Thursday 26th October 2017
10.00 until 1.00 pm
At Charlton House
make your own Halloween spider
plant a bulb and decorate the pot to use as a present.
Make this spider with wood and garden wire.
We do hope you can join us on Saturday October 21st to plant some crocuses in the garden near the Fairfield Health Centre; the bed close to Lansdowne Lane.
As last year, Rotary are again partnered with the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) to plant even more crocus this autumn. The purple crocus is a symbol of Rotary’s worldwide campaign to eradicate polio, with its colour representing the dye used to mark the finger of a child who has been immunized.
We will be at the garden from 9:30 am until all the crocus have been planted, and hope that you will be able to support the campaign and join us.
