Naturefest!

On a drizzly half-term Friday afternoon in June, the parish church was buzzing with excited children making wooden owls , painting stone ladybirds, designing flower and fern facemasks, and flower decorating. Faces were painted as animals, flowers and superheroes. Outside in the churchyard under the shelter of the trees or in the event shelters, they were busy making displays from natural objects (Nature art), building bird boxes, filling insect hotels and creating driftwood monsters. A swing in the cedar tree proved very popular, and a driftwood and old Ikea curtain shelter was suspended from another of the branches.
The activities were all part of Naturefest! held as part of the 5th anniversary of St Asaph gaining City status.
The enthusiasm of the youngsters was infectious and a number of adults were also clearly enjoying themselves joining in with the creative activities. Thanks to members of the parish church and Community Church, and all those who helped with the event. It was so good that it might even be repeated....!
