Read with Me Under a Tree
Fri 31 March 2017, 10:00 – 11:00 BST
Join us for a celebration of books, rhymes, activities and the great outdoors. Reading under a tree is a childhood memory for most of us and we remember the things we like. Let’s see if we can give our pre-school children some memories for them to pass on to the next generation.
During March there will be Read with Me Outdoor events where we will be reading a story, doing activities and singing songs. Available at the following parks:
Great Notley Country Park – Monday 20th March 10am – 11am
Weald Country Park – Thursday 23rd March 10am – 11am
Hadleigh Country Park – Tuesday 28th March 10am – 11am
Thorndon Country Park – Friday 31st March 10am – 11am
Come along to one of these free events (car parking charges apply) and enjoy reading together in the great outdoors. Please come dressed warmly for the outdoor sessions and prepared for messy play.
