Vintage Mary is at Stroud Shambles Market every Friday but during these strange Covid-19 times, why not check out online vintage outlets.  Time after Time in Stroud has an online shop with some amazing stock.

Gloucester Rugby Club has developed a home-learning pack which is worth checking out. Even though we are now into the summer term, there is a lot of energy behind closed doors and when the weather is good, it is great to get out in the fresh air as much as we are allowed to.

Stroud Valley Projects

SVP have launched a new website with an exciting project called Wild Classrooms to get us all out there, spotting plants, animals and birds. No need to go on safari to exotic places, it is all here under our noses. Spot 60 species in a year is the challenge. New Ventures Trust has signed up. Join with your class, your scout group or as a bunch of friends - you can do it all remotely and make sure you keep to the social distancing rules.
