Some Seedlings pictures - help with dates please

Postby Terry » Fri Nov 06, 2009 2:39 pm

Here are a few Seedlings pictures from days gone by.

Duck & Huddle at BVF

Early days at Victoria Farm -Seedlings tent

At BVF the children (Seedlings) spent ages sat round making a model van for a competition, the front was demonstrated by Matthew (aged 4 months), Steve and Amanda.

Image

Royal Birthday Party - fancy dress. Golden Jubilee celebrations by the Seedlings. Every child attending received a set of special stamps.

I think this is BVF, the Seedlings worked very hard to raise enough money to buy this playchute (I had to put loads into it as Amanda was really worried they would not be able to afford it!!). They sold raffle tickets to SSVC and T2OC members. Amanda liked the idea of rainbow colours and also got balls, a book of games etc to go with it. Shame I have not seen it in years now, the children loved playing with it.

Playing at Whitenoise (I think?)
Image

Victoria Farm fun and games. I can't find any pictures of the girls team (it took me ages to scan these pictures as they were all taken before I had a digital camera)
Image

Last for tonight. Whacky Races
These pickup vans were the key to the games (adults teams not children) the children played with them later when all the balloons filled with flour and water had been used by the adults trying to go through hoops!! Ann and Paul Edwards made the vans and I think it is Hollie Eccles on Amanda's shoulders in this picture.

Fun days

I have now counted the candles on the cake and there are 6 which would make it 1991.

I spied the king of tieland in the fancy dress and was it the queen of hearts or tarts (I seem to remember a plate of jam tarts)?

Does anyone have any photos from the early days of the seedlings?
I could do with them for something we are trying to get together for the activities at the AGM!
Or anyone who was a seedlings in the early days who would like to do a 'where are they now?'
Get in touch with me or email the seedlings email! Thanks, Reece - seedlings mag editor
