From the Dragons’ Den
To quote Dora the Explorer: Yes! We did it!
We did indeed re-start Little Dragons on the 7th of September as we hoped. Eleven Little Dragons and their Carers joined us in the well-ventilated, ‘well-anti-bacterialised’ church, to enjoy time with us.
All except two were completely new to us, as several of those who would normally have been coming during the past months have now gone to full-time school. The two ‘oldies’ soon gained possession of the red car, which is always a hot favourite with many of our users. The others soon caught on and were wanting to take their turn up and down the nave aisle.
The dolls were taken for several walks in their pram and the dolls’ houses were well used.
Pritt Stick was well in evidence as those who wished to, matched animal shapes to create the members of the story – ‘Brown Bear, Brown Bear, what do you see?
George, Uncle Sam and Idris were delighted to meet their new family, although they were quite cross that they had to sit on the edge of the altar table rather than be passed around from child to child, which is what usually happens.
Our Carers were very sensible in their use of masks if and when it seemed appropriate and we are hoping that the care on the part of everyone will mean that we are able to continue with our weekly meetings. Time will tell!
Please keep everything crossed for a good and safe term.
From Val and from we three: George, Uncle Sam and Idris.
