Art and Pizza in Roadwater

The village of Roadwater in Somerset has a remarkable village hall; a fabulous old building that is in constant use, surrounded by open land for playing and woodland across a stream. A team of hard-working volunteers take care of it and make sure its facilities are in constant use by the village for music, parties, events, fairs, sports and even art and pizza days!

Learning From The Land was asked to take part in a sustainable play day at the hall for local children, who are being encouraged to play more outside and with natural materials. We took some indoor craft materials in case the weather was foul, some outdoor cooking equipment and a rocket stove pizza oven to try out and had a fabulous day. Local children and their families came and made their own pizzas, cooked round an open fire, and fabricated mini wind turbines out of old plastic bottles. I have a sneaking suspicion the adults liked it as much as the children...
