Endon Well Dressing (2007)

In this, our "silver season", reality has dawned. Moorland Nursery School's children have been participating with Endon's Well Dressing Festival for 24 years (our first venture being in May 1983, 8 months after we opened our doors in Bagnall).

While slightly wiser to the techniques involved, our enthusiasm for this annual event remains undiminished.

Our picture is made using the same principles as that surrounding Endon's Well: a clay base is decorated with moss, gravel, bark, flowers and leaves. The two notable differences between the main picture and ours are 1) the size 2) the age of those who have produced it! All of our 3 and 4 year old children have a hand in creating our collage.

Up, up and away!

With silver streaks in hair and nursery alike, this year's picture had to acknowledge our 25th anniversary year!
