“UNLESS someone like you cares a whole awful lot,
nothing is going to get better. It's not.”
Dr Suess

Welcome to the children's section of our website.

We hope you enjoy the different activities we've shared below.  We love the Riverside Hunt which you can enjoy on walks around Riverside.

We would also love to see drawings of your favourite things that you have spotted around Riverside.

 

You can use this colouring in sheet to draw a picture of all the things you love. 

 

If you share it with us we will put it on our website or pop it through the door of 24 Forth Crescent and we will put in on our noticeboard.
