Messy fun teaches youngsters how to save the planet

Young visitors to Messy Church at St Nicholas in Dereham had a fantastic morning looking at how to protect and save our planet.
They looked at preventing fuel pollution by learning how to grow their own fruit and vegetables, protecting bees and butterflies from harmful insecticides and planting the flowers which they need, and saving sea-life in the oceans.
Crafts included flying bumble bees, woven fish, transplanting lettuces to grow on at home, and flower bracelets.
As always the air-hockey and bar-football were very popular.
Hot dogs and cake finished off a morning full of family fun.

The next session at the church will be during autumn half-term week on Thursday, October 26.
