Last weekend some of our younger residents spent their Saturday afternoon learning how to build fires, going pond dipping, catching spiders and generally getting their hands dirty!
This was made possible following a successful bid to the Lewisham Homes Community Investment Fund, which is supporting the Secret Adventurer’s Club to run a month-long series of free “Nature Explorer” sessions in July at the Dacres Wood Nature Reserve, exclusively for Lewisham Homes residents.
This gives local children a chance to explore the reserve and learn about the natural world while getting a chance to try new skills and projects while enjoying being outdoors.
Despite it being a lot wetter than expected this month, each session has been sold out and the children are really enjoying their outdoor experiences. You can find out more about the project here: http://secretadventurersclub.com/projects
