Edi EdittorsLetter orsLetter Welcome to the August magazine, How chilly is the weather at the moment? If you’re like me running around after little ones you will be keeping warmish! With school back in full swing and all the after school activities, it is hard to remember that you need time too. Have a look at the article on page 22 ‘Is self-care a theme coming up for you?’ Life is busy! - hopefully you can spare a few quiet minutes, to sit down and enjoy some of the fantastic reading in this months magazine. Put your money where your heart is ... Shop Local can be found on page 6. Pages 8 & 14 have helpful articles related to winter health and I found the article on page 12 Living with childhood cancer very interesting and informative. This month we celebrate both ‘Book Week’ and ‘Science Week’. What’s On page 20 has some exciting activities for the community at your local library. Kids Corner this month is also getting into celebrating science week with a Slime recipe to make. Hannah’s park report this month had her visiting the Stables Adventure Playground, Mill Park. Where she spent two hours creating her own little storybook adventures in the farm structure. (it is truly amazing to watch a child’s imagination blossom!) I hope you enjoy reading the August edition,

Rachel

h a n n a H h t i w Hanging The Stables Adventure Park Civic Drive, Mill Park

What a chilly day out - Hannah ventured to The Stables Adventure Park ... and what an adventure it was! There are lots of rockers, 2 slides, a fireman’s pole, 2 swings, a small flying fox and climbing equipment. Hannah’s favourite thing was playing games in the stable structure. Pretending to be the giant ... (Fe Fi Fo Fum), the 3 Li le Pigs, The Gingerbread Man and Old Mc Donald. It was fantas c to see the books we are reading at home being part of her outdoor play. Other facili es include; 2 undercover shelters, 3 tables, a BBQ, a rubbish bin and many park benches for watching your child play. There is also a large grassed area, great for playing ball games. However, the park does not have toilets. Hannah’s p - Don’t forget your imagina on and a warm coat!
