The Lost Words for every Primary, Infant and Special School in Oxfordshire

A team of three Oxfordshire residents (Rowena Rouse, Angela Wilson and Andy Egan) have come together to launch a crowdfunding campaign on 14th February to raise enough funds to provide a copy of The Lost Words by Robert Macfarlane and Jackie Morris to every primary, infant and special school in Oxfordshire. Our target is to raise £4,000 in 28 days.

As you probably know this award winning book (Children’s Book of the Year 2018) was inspired by the removal of words like acorn, bluebell, conker, kingfisher and otter from the Oxford Junior Dictionary. The Lost Words book combines a series of acrostic spells related to each lost word – intended to be read aloud – with beautiful accompanying illustrations.

We would be very grateful if you could help to promote the crowdfunder with your supporters and through social media. Our Faceboook page and Twitter account are live.

As part of the offer to schools we will also be providing a range of support materials and information to help teachers bring the book to life with their pupils and provide them with more opportunities to feel a close connection to the natural world. This will include a list of local organisations that provide environmental learning opportunities for schools.If this might be relevant for you then please contact us.

Wolvercote Young People’s Club – daytime tenant needed

Our long-term daytime tenant is leaving and this fabulous space in St Peter’s Road, Wolvercote, OX2 8AU is now available for a sub-tenancy between the hours of 8.00 – 4.30 weekdays. (The county council is our landlord.)

The building would suit a charity, sports club or not-for-profit running day time activities or classes for your clients. You would get a fully serviced building with lovely grounds, including a sports ‘cage’, car parking, equipped kitchen, small office (two workstations), sports hall, meeting room, which could provide further office space, and chill-out areas. See photos and further details of the space and rooms on our website: www.wolvercoteypc.org.uk

Our preference is to negotiate terms with an organisation wanting full daytime occupancy but we would consider long-term hire of individual spaces within the building.
Interested? Write to hello@wolvercoteypc.org.uk and we will be in touch.
