We have had some wonderful support from Ledbury Poetry Festival over the years, with lots of poetry and drama workshops at our clubs led by Toni Cook. During lockdown this continued with some wonderful sessions online and culminated in this podcast all about Young Carers recorded at the beginning of this year.
I had a special request to post how to make these after making them at our online club last night. Here you go! I can recommend this page if you want some very good step by step instructions on how to fold the paper and some suggestions for snowflake designs.
Did you see us?
For Young Carers Action Day on March 16th we decided to give our Young Carers the opportunity to be drawn as any action hero or character they chose. It’s been fascinating seeing them as their alter-egos. Huge thanks to Sassy Steve for the amazing artwork.
Two of our Young Carers talked to BBC Radio Hereford and Worcester about being a Young Carer and how Children in Need funding has helped.

Valentine’s Day is drawing near so Carole has been making some heart-themed crafts this week. This is a craft called dry needle felting and she’s using a felting kit. If you’d like to have a go at this but don’t have a felting kit just let us know and we’ll sort one out for you!
More felt craft from Carole. – this time using soap! If you fancy a go and would like the materials to try this craft, just let us know.
Carole had a couple of Christmas Cookies kits leftover so decided to adapt them to be more seasonal, ready for Valentine’s Day next month. If you fancy a go at cookie baking let us know and we’ll send you a recipe and any extras you need if you don’t already have the ingredients.
Carole’s been experimenting with making bird feeders for our feathered friends now that the cold weather is here. You can hang these up in your garden or outside your window and the local birds will really appreciate it.
