Young Carers Summer Treat
On Tuesday 2nd July a group of Young Carers from The Downs Primary School enjoyed an afternoon at Northbourne Primary School.
After lunch Kevin Chidwick- Forest School Leader and site manager demonstrated how to create a ‘wood cookie’ which the children produced and took home as a souvenir. This was followed by a time around the campfire where the children were shown how to start a fire, boil water and make hot chocolate using Kelly Kettles followed by marshmallows! The afternoon was enjoyed by all and for some provided them with a welcome break from the stresses that helping to care for a family member can sometimes bring.
