We celebrated National Share-A-Story Month with its theme of Stories in Unusual Places with the The Castleshaw Quest!
We are going to a nearby reservoir at Castleshaw to complete a Quest: a family-walk where we follow a trail inspired by the landscape to save the reservoir from an evil toad! A local artist has come up with this trail and she’ll be leading us.
