The exciting news is that we did our first two ’Tree Awareness’ workshops in Thornhill Square, Islington this week. St. Andrew’s school Years 1 and 2 arrived full of the joys and they were all ready and willing to enjoy the sunshine and find out more about trees. One child said their favorite part was finding out about the giant London Plane tree planted there in 1847. They were also intrigued by the idea that this tree had been looking after people for one hundred and seventy one years, by absorbing polluted air, from coal fires to car fumes.

Of course they all loved the hot chocolate too and hearing about Little Fir Tree as well as a few new songs from the show.

We’ve got eight more workshops to go in October and I can honestly say I’m looking forward to every one… Fingers crossed the weather holds!
