Our Super Heroes line up in St Mary's Church, Melton Mowbray.
Being a Super Hero is OK, I mean you get to meet Batman and Robin...
... and to make giant bubbles with Hattie the clown...
... but after all this hard work what I really like is ... a nice cake!
Seeing double... Oksana and Shaun Cope dress to impress at the chess table.
Giant bubbles proved fun for children and adults alike.
A super morning!
Super heroes got a glimpse of how to protect our planet at the latest activities morning in St Mary's Church, Melton Mowbray, on Saturday (January 11th).
Our own Batman and Robin were joined by 120 adults and 79 children when the theme of our morning was Super Heroes Save the World.
There were lots of activities including art, recycling bins to colour, chance to make recycling headbands, our usual quiz, story time with Keith Wilson, our creative prayer area, Super Hero cake decorating, our book swap, our riddle table, giant bubbles and balloons with Hattie the clown, chance to plant your own Christmas tree, chance to learn how to play chess with our maestro Shaun Cope and also to learn lace making.
Diane Gilbert, education officer with Biffa, the leading integrated waste management company, came along and brought with her some recycling games for families to play and information leaflets, and answered any questions around recycling. There was also a display featuring WildAid and its mission to support wildlife rescue and rehabilitation across the UK. To find out more about WildAid click here.
There was also chance to read the day's newspapers or to sit and chat with others and enjoy tea, coffee, juice and delicious cakes.
The morning finished with a short act of worship, led by Melton Mowbray Team Parish Rector, the Revd Kevin Ashby.
If you missed this month's activities morning make sure you don't miss our next one on Saturday, February 8th, from 10.30am until 12noon in St Mary's Church, Melton Mowbray, when our theme will be The Tiger who came to Tea - Party!
It promises to be a fun morning and there will be chance to dress up in your tiger onesies or party clothes and have your pictures taken with the giant Tiger who came along to last year's Christmas Tree Festival in St Mary's Church. There will also be chance to make tiger masks and to learn some interesting facts about tigers.
Everyone is welcome. Please note that all our activities mornings are FREE of charge.
