On Monday 15th April, over forty excited children, together with their parents, grandparents, great-grandparents and carers, attended an Easter Celebration afternoon at Wimborne Methodist Church. There were many activities to take part in, firstly making a palm branch to wave as they watched a video of Jesus entering Jerusalem on Palm Sunday. The children followed Deacon Alison McMillan around the church waving their branches and making a joyful noise.

The church was decorated with baskets of eggs and coloured ribbons. There were songs to sing, and plenty more crafts to make — an Easter card, a bunny napkin ring, a decorated cross, an empty tomb with cress to grow in front, an Easter wreath and a large wooden cross to be decorated with mosaic tiles, which will be left in the church until Easter Sunday. The afternoon was rounded off with a delicious tea for all.

The event was organised by Deacon Alison, Joy Morling and Jan Vincent, but it would not have been possible without the help of numerous willing volunteers, thank you to everyone who helped in any way.
