The Small Steps group at Down to Earth Community Café finished their last session of five last Saturday (November 18) with environmental activities.

Activities children attending the sessions enjoyed included designing composting creatures and completing quizzes about peashoot planting and which waste products can be composted.

Volunteers also baked with the children using surplus food, teaching them about the costs of food miles, and made popcorn and cranberry garlands for Christmas.

Kate Farrington who runs the café said: “A whirlwind of different activities has kept the children participating very busy in the last five weeks.

"We’re planning to run our next block of five sessions next year between the new year and February half term.

“Thank you to local organisations Replenish and Wild Wantage for their help and contributions."
