Leafy lanterns light up half-term hol­i­day

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

COLNE Val­ley Vis­i­tor Cen­tre was busy on Mon­day, with 24 chil­dren and their par­ents en­joy­ing Leafy Lan­tern Mak­ing.

Staff guided chil­dren, aged be­tween four and 10, to col­lect dog­wood leaves from the woods around the cen­tre and then helped them weave the green­ery into pyra­mid­shaped lanterns.

Par­ents could choose be­tween a glow­stick and can­dle to il­lu­mi­nate the lan­tern, with most choos­ing the tra­di­tional op­tion.

Vis­i­tor cen­tre manager Sarah Hod­gett was pleased with the at­ten­dance, say­ing: “It was a re­ally good turnout de­spite the rain.”

The lan­tern mak­ing event cost £2 to at­tend and was one of a string of chil­dren’s ac­tiv­i­ties, in­clud­ing bird feed­ing and a craft af­ter­noon, tak­ing place in Colne Val­ley Park over the half-term.

When asked how the chil­dren’s lanterns had turned out, Ms Hod­gett said: “They’re look­ing leafy, they’re look­ing good.” IF WE have pub­lished any­thing that is fac­tu­ally in­ac­cu­rate, please con­tact the Edi­tor at marnie. wil­son@trin­i­tymir­ror.com or at Buck­ing­hamshire Ad­ver­tiser, Trinity Mir­ror South­ern, c/o Trinity Mir­ror Colour Print, St Al­bans Road, Wat­ford, Herts WD24 7RG and, once ver­i­fied, we will cor­rect it as soon as pos­si­ble.
