Marshalling marshmallows - NEWT's Easter community event
The NEWTs woke up Easter Monday
The rain and the snow meant no funday
So we cancelled event
And pulled down our tent
Had our fingers crossed twice for the Thursday
The day came along with a spring!
The sun shone bright: Ding-a-Ling!
So we carted our ‘junk’
To the wetland bunk
And set up the raffle and things
At first a few folks trundled in
All waiting for us to begin
Then along came the hoards
Who had followed our boards
Like the Pied Piper had drawn them all in!
The egg hunt went off with a storm
Kids all over the park like a swarm
Nearly all eggs were found
Whilst crawling around
Thank goodness the weather was warm
The pebble art got nice and messy
Luckily no-one had come too dressy!
With a splodge and a splash
The whole of our stash
Was placed round the park. Where? Who’d guessy? (sorry)
The marshmallow toasting was ace
Each child enjoyed stuffing their face
The raffle was drawn
The prizes were won
A huge thank you to all! Happy days!
The event could not have gone ahead without the kind donations from the local community, Morrisons, NEWT families and The Queens pub, Little Lever. Over 150 people attended! THANK YOU!
