We Went Wild at Greylake
On Wednesday 27th August we ‘Went Wild At Greylake’, the RSPB reserve on the Somerset levels – the weather was kind (as in it did not rain!!) and those who attended had a great time.
We had a total of 18 attend, 9 adults and 9 children.
The children enjoyed collecting items for their sticky boards and learning the names of different grasses and flowers. We discovered just how high the flood water went in the winter – certainly food for thought.
The 3 dads that came particularly enjoyed the pond dipping with their children.
The day was finished with a lovely picnic together and a very quiet trip back on the mini bus with some of the children falling asleep!
Short Story Prize Results!
On Saturday 12th April Rose Tremain, herself the winner of numerous literary awards, came all the way from Norfolk to the Bridgwater Arts Centre to announce the three winning authors in the Home-Start Bridgwater Competition for 2014.
The First Prize went to Julian Holt of Garstang in Lancashire. His story, entitled ‘James Joyce at Speech Day’, Ms. Tremain commented, showed “a true, poetic, writerly sensibility and a real understanding of how language works”. Sadly, Mr. Holt is seriously ill in hospital and was unable to attend the prize-giving. His £500 prize, generously donated by Nigel White of Key Financial Solutions of Weston super Mare, has been posted to his family. We all wish him a good and speedy recovery.
