Today we had a lovely picnic in Fredwell Gardens to celebrate the beginning of the summer. Battersea Sure Start’s Parents Forum joined us to discuss and evaluate recent fun events for children in Battersea and Clapham Common. We decided to attend the Battersea Firebrigade’s Big Fun Day in Este Road on Saturday 28.June,too.

Add Sultanas, brown sugar, eggs and honey into mixture. Mix the ingredients with wooden spoon. IT IS IMPORTANT NOT TO OVER MIX! Pour into loaf pan and bake for aproximately 45-50 mins. Use skewer to check if it is cooked through. If it comes out clean and dry, than it’s done.

Because it’s Half Term, instead of our regular coffee morning we organised Still Life Painting for children (but Mums can join in, too) on Friday, 18.April in Goulden House, Entrance B on Bullen Street, Battersea. We have limited amount of equipment, so if you would like to come, bring any brushes or paints that you might have. If not, come anyway at 2pm-4pm and learn something through play.
