Grozone proves a success at Barons Quay during Easter Holidays

To round up Easter Holiday activity, in conjunction with Grozone, Barons Quay organised three days of FREE activities. Over 230 children and families visited Barons Quay over the three day period to create Wildflower Meadows and Bug Hotels, Natural Artwork and Cress Heads.

Wildflower Meadows and Bug Hotels created by the children and Grozone, will be planted at Barons Quay’s Riverside Garden at a later date.

Children created their own piece of natural art on Wednesday 11th April using paints from fruit, charcoal and mud as well as grass and sticks as paint brushes.

Saturday 14th April gave children the opportunity to create their own cress heads using tights and sawdust to plant cress seeds and watch them grow their own head of hair.

 

Andy Martin, Grozone Project Manager, commented on the week at Barons Quay “Delivering the workshops was a great opportunity for Grozone to work with Barons Quay and to promote the work that we do. It was really encouraging to meet so many people who had already heard about Grozone, and heart warming that many people came to the workshops purely because they knew that Grozone staff were running them. Staff and volunteers from Grozone all enjoyed delivering the sessions and look forward to working with Barons Quay again in the future”.
