It’s real - Training Day Friday 20th January
Having been notified we had been granted Heritage Lottery Funds on 8th December 2016 earnest planning was put in action awaiting the release of funds in January 2017.
Purchasing equipment to enable the seven local schools who will be sending in separate groups of their years 1-2, 3-4 and 5-6 has nearly been completed. More importantly before we receive the first school children leaders and helpers enjoyed a training day on January 20th.
Everybody listened carefully to their Safeguarding training, but then enjoyed going back to being students. Having a go at learning about all the activities including the environment, storytelling, enacting a baptism and educational fun that the children will be participating in when their school visits.
Many of the residents of Ovington can be seen engaged in the activities.
