Kirton Kids Club

Yet again the wonderful conker trees along the foot path at the Church have spilled their glowing brown jewels into the hands of the children.

It never fails to amaze me that children get so much pleasure from finding, opening, counting and keeping conkers!

I am sure their adults must think ‘Oh no – not again’ – but if they could see their children and how happy conkers seem to make them they would understand everything.

I must admit it has lasted a little longer than normal this year – but it is due to the lovely weather and being able to get out side for the last month. Most years the children have made ‘pets’ out of some of the conkers – giving them legs etc. This year they have even given them faces, hair and named them.

I think we have only had to be inside the Centre three times in the last month – quite a record for us and so nice to still be able to be outside.

Please remember that the club is open the same dates as the Primary School and we have a two week Oct. half term.

The ‘count down’ to Christmas is fast moving on us and I can see how quickly this term has gone so expect the next one to too.

A quick thank you to Natalie C. for being so kind as to donate the big outside ‘Castle’ for the children to play in.

It is very popular and at times gets a little over crowded and we have to ‘evict’ a few.

But children’s play is such a pleasure to watch. Their ideas, imagination and flair takes over and their play takes them to many different places and times.

The breakfast club is still very full each day but we do have a few places on some of the afternoon sessions – please ask.

Breakfast club starts at 7.30am and after school finishes at 5.45pm. Tel: 07583 762072 for more details or visit: www.kirtonkidsclub.co.uk
