My Wild Life Project launches with a Family Affair

Join Froglife for the first reminiscence event of our new project My Wild Life at Yaxley Library on Thursday 2 June at 10.30.

As part of a series of events celebrating National Family Week, the library has invited us to hold a picnic-themed event for children, parents and grandparents. A reminiscence kit of nostalgic items will be used to encourage older people to remember their childhood adventures and share them with younger people. Afterwards they will have the opportunity to be part of filmed interviews which will eventually be made into a DVD to celebrate the project.

It’s great that this project works so well as part of the National Family Week events,” said My Wild Life Project Officer Jodie Coomber. “Families can come along and do something together; sharing memories, having fun and eating froggy cupcakes!”

Anyone is welcome to come along and take part, so if you want to have a fun and educational family day out, Yaxley Library is the place to be! Don’t worry if you can’t make this event though, there will be plenty more throughout the summer to get involved with.

If you would like to know more about My Wild Life please visit the website or contact Jodie on 07875 958831 or jodie.coomber@froglife.org.
