Dig­ging into hol­i­day fun

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

Young green-thumbs will have their school-hol­i­day cre­ations en­tered in Hor­sham Show in Septem­ber.

Unit­ing Wim­mera part­nered with Hor­sham Agri­cul­tural So­ci­ety to of­fer chil­dren the chance to ‘put their cre­ativ­ity to work’ at a free school-hol­i­day ac­tiv­ity at Hor­sham’s May­dale Pavil­ion.

Unit­ing Wim­mera project worker Tami Lane said 30 chil­dren made mini suc­cu­lent gar­dens, woollen pom-poms, dec­o­rated plates and wooden spoons.

She said the cre­ations would be­come en­tries in a chil­dren’s com­pe­ti­tion sec­tion at Hor­sham Show.

“The work­shop was de­signed as a school-hol­i­day ac­tiv­ity for fam­i­lies to par­tic­i­pate in to­gether,” she said.

“Hor­sham Agri­cul­tural So­ci­ety al­lowed fam­i­lies to use the GJ Gard­ner Homes Com­mu­nity Gar­den to source suc­cu­lents for the ac­tiv­ity.”
