At the first meeting of the club the young people enthusiastically arrived with their sub money of £3 to sit down and plan what sort of activities they would like to do, before taking a walk around the village to help shut in the charity’s chickens and say good night to the ponies and donkey. A few parents came too.
The ages ranged from 4 to 12 with the older children helping the younger ones to read what they needed to. They also helped with climbing gates and pushing wheelchairs across bumpy fields to visit the animals.
The children decided to meet once a fortnight and have planned all their activities from now until Christmas with lots more ideas for the New Year too.
They have all gone away with paper to design their own membership card, which will be voted on at the next meeting and a few have decided to make up posters to advertise the club to their friends
