COOL EVENTS TO FIGHT THE SUMMER HEAT!

July 28, 2022

UEFA Women’s EURO England 2022 mascots – Kai, Ashley and Robyn have been traveling around the nation this month greeting football fans! With the mission to encourage children to be active, they would like to ensure that everybody, everywhere has the opportunity to play football! Congratulations to England on their win in the WESUROS 2022 too!

Children from the Wimbledon Football club had the best time with Great Uncle Bulgaria, Madame Cholet, Haydon and Wandle at the Wombles’ Orinoco bench launching ceremony; the Wombles also took lead to help tiding up the neighbourhood area.

Invited by St Clement & St James CE Primary School, Peter Rabbit™ visited the new Peter Rabbit Garden which aims to help London school pupils spend more time in nature. While Paddington™ travelled all the way to the birthplace of the modern railway – Head of Steam Darlington Railway Museum, to spend a sunny day out with his little fans.
