Farndale Kids Club

Living in such a rural place, there isn’t much opportunity for the children in the dale to get together after school to socialise.

Back in 2012 a few parents decided to set up a Kids Club at the Village Hall.  They played games, did fun activities, made things, had picnic teas, and also went for walks and picnics out.  There were also parties held at Halloween, and special Kids Club film nights with popcorn and snacks.

The old hall saw many afternoons and evening events for the Kids Club – and with the addition of the table tennis now, the new village hall started being used by the children in the dale for table tennis sessions too.  There had also been sessions making Christmas decorations and decorating the hall for the Christmas party at the end of 2019, and they watched Peter Rabbit at a special film club, and had a spring walk with snacks at the hall afterward.

The Kids Club had not come together as much during 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic.  A Christmas craft making session was organised in November 2021, and following that, three of four further Kids Club sessions ran, making crowns and other things especially for the Farndale Jubilee Celebration Event that took place in June 2022.  They also made posies as part of the Church’s Mother’s Day celebrations.

In the autumn of 2022 a small group of mothers got together and have re-started the a monthly Kids Club. In September there was a film afternoon and a walk; in October, Halloween/autumn crafts; in November a film afternoon; and Christmas crafts in December.

In January 2023 they had a film afternoon and in February a trip out to Danby Moor Centre.  March was an Easter Egg hunt, and in April the kids did animal themed arts and crafts and Coronation crowns. May was the Kids Club sponsored walk to raise funds and June was play and a picnic at Gillamoor.  July was a craft-day in the Hall; a trip to Ryedale Folk Museum in August; and in September joined the Farndale and Friends Walking Group.  October was garden/bug and Halloween crafts, and in November the Kids Club had a fun film afternoon. In December everyone joined in some Christmas crafts too.

Farndale Kids Club is now being held on the third Saturday of each month, 2.00pm-4.00pm at the Village Hall. See the Facebook group page for info.  Next dates for 2024 are:

Saturday 20th January
