Elves & Flower Fairy Day at Nature’s World

Tees Valley Community Foundation has teamed up with Hands On Middlesbrough to provide funding for the Friends of Nature's World, in Acklam, Middlesbrough, to buy gardening tools to help in their conservation work at the site. Pictured, seated left, is Friends of Nature's World Chair, Scarlet Pink along with some of the project volunteers.

The Friends of Nature’s World recently received some funding from Tees Valley Community Foundation for tools to help us maintain the gardens and water features at (the former) Nature’s World. We had previously been bringing our own from home, as we did not have access to tools onsite or even a space to sit down and have a cup of tea. We spent many a winters day wet, cold and huddled over a flask of tea to pass around a team of about 5 people. How things have changed in 2 years, as we now have a base in the tea room which is warm in the winter and cool in the summer and we have a team of about 15 regular volunteers. We have also been granted some access to council tools (for the time being), but thankfully funding from Tees Valley Community Foundation means that we can be secure with our own tools for the future.

To celebrate a successful summer, Friends of Nature’s World are hosting a Pixies, Elves & Fairies event. So come along make some fairy wands, plant some wild flowers and make some fairy and dinosaur worlds outside the Tea Room area at Nature’s World, Sandy Flatts Lane on the 28th July 11am – 2pm. There will be face painting, arts and crafts, fairy cakes and live music from well-known folk singers Sara Dennis and Marie Marx.

Elves, Pixies and Fairy Fancy Dress welcome!

Please be aware only the area around the tea room is open to the public for this event. This event is FREE but donations are welcome on the day. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
