With the clocks changing we now see stunning sunsets that filter through the tall conifers whilst we pack up the site each day to leave no trace.

At FRUK we practice child led activities. One of the children asked if he could do some hammering. We got the tool kit out and he searched our site for pieces of wood. Then set about hammering nails to create a structure of his own design.

We ended the week with a party with family and friends of FRUK with sparklers, glow sticks, hot chocolate and mulled wine for the grown ups. Thank you to all those that came and celebrated with us our 2nd Birthday. We’ve achieved so much in such a short space of time and had oh so many adventures in our favourite place outdoors!
