You don’t have to go down to the deep dark wood to meet the Gruffalo…just come down to Forehill Library!

August 8, 2017

You don’t have to go down to the deep dark wood to meet the Gruffalo…just come down to Forehill Library! He loves cuddles and sharing a story – so it’s lucky he’s had lots of little visitors over the school holidays to keep him company.

We’ve been very busy at the library with superhero crafts, LEGO sessions and the very talented sewing group made some amazing tie-dye t-shirts and pom-poms!

Join us for more craft fun tomorrow at Forehill from 2.15pm – 3.15pm.
Suitable for ages 5-11 years. To book your free place Tel: 01292 265591.
