Christmas Decorations Event – Pictures

The Friends of Griffin Wood would like to thank everybody who attended our ‘making Christmas decorations from natural materials’ event which was organised in collaboration with Paul Bamber of Access To Nature – TMF.

Our first group of the day

A selection of the materials used

The first minibus attending came with ‘Up Ponky’ – a creative over fifties group who meet at the LEAF Centre, Chester Lane. They bravely arrived during the morning when we had torrential rain. Others attending during the day included. Ali a trainer with the Expert Patient Programme (EPP) and member of the Health Improvement Team. The EPP held a get together in Griffin Wood earlier in the year and are looking forward to other events.

Some members of Up Ponky get creative

Congrats must go to Reg who Won the largest wreath competition and Declan! who was a great help with his added enthusiasm. Unfortunatly we had a few cancellations due to the weather, which started off wet but soon brightened up, but stayed cold.
