Coast & Country’s Westfield Farm partnered with Dormanstown Primary School to offer children a chance to transport themselves into a world of knights and dragons.

The two sessions delivered a mix of crafts and games to entertain the children who had been learning about knights and dragons at school.

They were given the chance to make their very own knight’s shield and helmet to wear before setting off on a dragon hunt around Westfield Farm’s gardens.

Westfield Farm also provided dragon toys and paper mâché ‘dragon eggs’ for the youngsters to take home.

Barry McBride, Westfield Farm Co-ordinator, said: “The structured activity sessions notonly helped to stimulate the children’s imaginations, but were also fun and educational as the focus of the activities were centred around helping the children develop their craft building and concentration skills.

“We are proud of our longstanding relationship with the school and enjoy being the community hub in Dormanstown. We always have an action packed schedule of activity sessions planned and ready to deliver for the children.”

As well as being an important resource for Dormanstown children, Westfield Farm’s facilities include training, meeting and conference hubs, community gardens and allotments, a community resource and training centre, and a base for Coast & Country’s “Journey into Work” programme. It also houses the Working Communities Team and Redcar and Cleveland Voluntary Development Agency, as well as a residents’ food co-operative.
