Calling all Children & Young People of Ryton-on-Dunsmore!

As you know we have many people in our village who are elderly,living on their own and self-isolating. We need your help to brighten up their Easter!

We would love you to make an Easter Card, the cards will be given out by volunteers who are delivering groceries and prescriptions to our vulnerable people. Please will you make the most amazing cards to cheer everyone up in these difficult times. Martin Fleming who volunteers to help our vulnerable people is coordinating, along with the Parish council and @stleonardschurchryton.

Here are some guidelines to help you;

~ The size should be A4 folded or small – no larger please .
It can be square, rectangular, Easter egg shaped or any other shapes you think of !
~ Envelopes are NOT needed.
~ Please use an Easter theme and make it as bright and colourful as you can.
~ It doesn’t need to be religious however it can be.
~ Please DO NOT put your name in it
~ Sign it “Happy Easter from a young person from Ryton.”
Remember your card is to bring a little bit of comfort to people and share we are thinking about them.
~ You can make more than one card!
~ Please take a photo of the card and share it here on the post on our Facebook page so we can share them! (see @rytonondunsmore)
~ Please deliver your card(s) to EASTER EGG CARD COLLECTION BOX, which will be outside the Village Hall – The box is outside the Village Hall from 5th April and we be collected after 7pm on 7th April.

# Remember all the guidelines regarding how to stay safe
# Remember to wash you cards before leaving the card off
# After you’ve delivered your card and get home wash your hands
# Remember social distancing and keep apart from others

Finally all children must be escorted by an adult when dropping off the card to the delivery box. Here are some ideas to get you started ! Enjoy making your cards we know you’re a creative bunch!
