2015-02-02, Pigg's Playbarn Feb half term poster

The February half term is sometimes tricky for children’s activities – the British weather can be so unforgivingly bitter. In Pigg’s Playbarn at Apley Farm Shop, try pancake making on Shrove Tuesday 17 Feb or nursery rhyme mobile making on Wednesday 18 Feb.

Spanish is our next language – we’ve begun, but progress is so far rather patchy !
