MONDAY, 2ND JULY 2018

Dear Parents/Carers,

We are really pleased to let you know that we are planning to visit the New Leaf Allotment in Muscliff again this Summer and this will take place on Monday, 2nd July from 10.30 until approx. 1.30 p.m. Those of you who came last year will know how much fun the children had - going on bug hunts, planting seeds, watering, making bug hotels and generally exploring the natural environment. We will also have lunch together in the orchard so please bring a picnic (and wet wipes!).

All children need to be accompanied by an adult and will be your responsibility during our visit. As this is a working, very rural allotment you need to be aware of uneven/muddy ground, ponds etc. There is even a compost loo (but don’t’ let that put you off – it is like a normal loo but with sawdust instead of a flush)!! We also need to ensure that growing plants, various flower beds, volunteers who may be working at the allotment etc are respected so it is essential that your child is supervised at all times. However, this is a fabulous opportunity for the children to see vegetables and fruit growing in a really natural environment, especially as we have been growing and nurturing our own plants here at Priory View!

As this is such a rural location please be aware that there is no parking on-site – there are roads where you can park nearby. You will find a map on the reverse of this letter. There is an entrance to the allotment at the back of the orchard – it can be accessed via the footpath near the rear of Muscliffe park. Walk along Muscliffe Lane, pass the Epiphany school, cross Aragon Way and the footpath is on your right. Walk along the footpath for a few minutes and the gate to the allotment is on the left-hand side. Alternatively you can keep going along Muscliffe Lane until you reach the front entrance of the allotment. We will put some signs up this year to make it easier to find us!

Please complete this slip and let us know whether you will be coming or not on our trip – this will enable us to plan our activities and resources. Please be aware that the pre-school will be closed on this day.
