Family fun day opportunity to start rewilding

Bug-hunting sisters Lily Rose, 18 months, and Gracie May, 6, mum Charlotte Lamb (left) and the girls' cousin, Joseph Cooper, 4, are pictured at the Bumper Family Day at Silsden Town Hall on Sunday, October 16. Guiding them is teacher Lucy Thornton, who is on a mission to "Rewild the Child" through her Ace Workshops, which study nature, animals, conservation and the environment. Lucy teaches animal management at Craven College and has a smallholding at Oxenhope.

Rebecca Savage-Tatterton, 7, concentrates on making a necklace at Mrs Beads' Workshop at the Family Day while dad Paul Tatterton admires her handiwork. Organised by the Friends of Silsden Town Hall, the second annual Family Day also featured model railways, Bricks4Kidz, junior jazz dance, arts and crafts, glitter tattoos, library activities and a cafe. More than 200 attended.
