Fire-pit Inauguration (16th September 2013)

We met outside again and played the very scary Blob Tag. In a standing circle we did news as a race against time.

All gathered to plan around the fire-pit
Then we split into groups and all groups took it in turns to build the fire, gather nettles (wearing gloves) and put marshmallows on sticks.

Nettle and mint tea and marshmallows on the go
We boiled nettle and mint tea on the fire, toasted marshmallows and shared with our guests: Mike Buck and John came from the Wolvercote Commoners and Wolvercote Tree Group. Some parents joined us too and Hilary from Woodcraft District came with her guitar.

Hilary leading the singing
We sang Campfires Burning, Land of the Silver Birch, The Cow Kicked Nellie, Woodcraft Folk are We and ended linking hands with the Woodcraft Folk Song.

The fire-pit is well and truly inaugurated.

Session Lead: Alison
Leaders: Catrin, Lucy, Kate, Hilary
Helper: Tei, Jan, Mike, John
