Since we started the group back in September we have only had one week where we had any rain (and that was only a light misting of drizzle).
Today our run of fine dry Fridays came to an abrupt and slightly damp end with a (completely un-forecasted) rain shower half way through the session. The small people were fine....they were all togged up in brand new waterproofs. Unfortunately I don't think the adults had one waterproof between us!
By next week we'll do our very best to find a way of providing shelter from the rain (anybody got any large tarps lingering in the back of the garage?).
Plans are also in place to spend our Waitrose Community Matters Grant (£280!!! what great news!) to purchase a small selection of adult sized waterproof coats to add to our clothing library. We are also planning a lovely surprise to help keep stream loving tots extra comfortable...but you'll just have to watch this space to find out what were planning...
New members are ALWAYS welcome to come and join the fun, so drop us a message or just turn up and get stuck in!
Happy puddle jumping and we'll see you all next week!


  1. Hi Rachel, I just came across your facebook page & then the blog, I love it. My dream would be to run an outdoor pre-school - who knows one day perhaps. Have you come across Active kids Club - they are a US/Canada based outdoor playgroup group. Good luck & I am looking forward to following the blog. Kierna

  2. Oh what fun ! Puddle jumping and mud play is the best.
