In case you have missed it: yesterday was National Children’s Day. But not to worry: you get another, very good chance to participate this weekend.
This Saturday, 18 May, the Rosmini Centre in Wisbech is holding its annual and very well-attended International Children’s Day. There will be a range of activities and is worth a visit. This is a summary of their programme:
International Children’s Day is running from 10am – 4pm on 18th May 2013, this is the fourth time we have run this event and it has grown each year in popularity.

The Rosmini Centre is a Registered Charity that is run for the Community, we provide rooms for hire, a community Cafe, groups for Parents and Children, Information, Advice and Guidance in several languages and much much more!
We have a very friendly and helpful set of staff and volunteers who can assist you with any query you may have so do not hesitate to get in contact.
As part of the delivery phase for the Ouse Washes LPs scheme, Rosmini Centre is working out details for the creation of educational ‘tool boxes’ which will be loaned out to schools and youth groups. In these, information will be available to explain the myriad relationships between historic and recent migrations within the Ouse Washes and the wider Fens area, and the effect this has had on the landscape, heritage and heritage perception.
Migration is a key element in the Ouse Washes landscape, whether we talk about wildlife, the daily and seasonal water movements, and people; as such, this project will help people getting a better understanding of their own heritage and that of others. As part of the development phase, we are currently also finalising a series of themes to create a coherent way we are presenting the project and the landscape itself. ‘Migration stories’ will be one of these key themes. More about the themes shortly; watch this space!
