Tiddlewinks Visits

During the summer school holiday the Tiddlewinks Group organised several day trips to local attractions.

The chickenpox tried to put paid to our trips over the summer but eventually one by one we emerged from our 2 weeks of isolation to enjoy some great trips around the local area.

First trip was Farmer Gowes, it was a small turn out for this trip (due to more spots) Â but great fun was had by all, feeding the cute baby lambs and pigs, clambering over the hay bales, and riding on the tractor.

The week after the same group went to Beale Park to enjoy the meerkats, flamingos and owls, there was some competitive sandcastle building and lots of splashing in the swimming pool.

Harcourt Arboretum was a much more laid back affair. We had a lovely picnic lunch on one of the few sunny days of the summer. The children played hide and seek, football and hunt the peacock.

The last trip to Abingdon was also blessed with great weather, while the mums and babies lay out (we wish) in the shade of the poplar trees the children ran wild in and out of the water shoots giggling for hours. They certainly worked up an appetite as they wolfed down the picnic and ice cream before running off to play on the swings, rocking horse and slides in the playground.
