Seaside Summer Club

Seaside Summer Club 2017

Seaside Summer Club was a huge success and I wish to take this opportunity to thank a number of people without whom the club could not have taken place.

Firstly, to our benefactors this year who were extremely generous in their financial support. I would like to express my thanks to a number of individuals (you know who you are X), to Bishops Nympton Investment Club, South Molton Rotary Club, Thomas Cook Children’s Charity and to each of the parishes of the Edgemoor Group who donated. With your help we have been able to provide for this year’s club and will be in a strong position to do so next year. Thank you all very, very much.

I would also like to pass on my thanks to all those who kindly volunteered their time to help in the smooth running of the club as we couldn’t have done it without you. Thank you so much to all the members of our many parishes who assisted in the supervision and running of activities, providing refreshments and in the smooth running of each day. Huge appreciation also goes to the fantastic youngsters who gave up several days of their own holidays to offer their enthusiasm and commitment to ensure that the club was a success. You were all simply brilliant!

Finally, I would like to thank all the children who participated. Your enjoyment was a pleasure to see and I hope that you all had a wonderful time!

"Summer Club was about the seaside this year.  It was really good. You could make a hat; I made a hat with sea animals on it. We were all put in a group, I was in red group. In our groups we painted the seaside and we made a sand castle.  We also made salt dough animals. We sang songs which I liked.  We told lots of funny jokes about the seaside.  Mine was: What did one rock pool say to the other?  Show me your muscles!! We watched a Punch and Judy show and ate fish and chips on the last day.

On Sunday we went to Church.  I stood at the front.  We were all given a coconut!  I really want to go next year."

I really enjoyed summer club because on the last day you could have fish and chips. We played games and I liked the game where we were split into teams and we had to run with a ball around outside and then back in again. And then we gave it to the next person and went to the back of the queue and they did the same thing. We made these big spongebob figures and we made seaside scenes. I already had a friend there, Stanley, but I met lots of new people. I was in the green team and our leaders were good.
