African Drumming and Peace Gardens!

Going on the tram to Sheffield. We haven't used public transport for ages, so we were very excited.
Lollies and police bikes. It didn't take as long as I thought to get there so we had some time to spare.
We found the last remaining police box in Sheffield. They were first introduced in the 1920's when the police had no radios. The police boxes were placed on police beats and if there was a problem the policeman could run to the box and phone the station for help.
Then onto the library for African drumming.
Googs wasn't too impressed with the drum he got.
Kiki wanted a go, but not for long.
Boo and her friend.
Googs just gave up, he sat like that refusing to drum :o(
It got hot in there so it was good to get out and get some fresh air. First at the winter gardens

then onto the peace gardens.

They all scattered so Z. and I spent our whole time counting heads to make sure we didn't loose anyone, wishing that we had dressed the younger boys in flouresent colours :o)

I was just hoping that they didn't get too wet as we had to go home on the tram.

Looking wishfully at the money that had been thrown in. Lots of children were fishing the coins out, I think maybe in the summer, a good compromise would be to allow them to fish the coins out and then donate them to a charity.
