Roll up! Roll up! All the fun of the circus that is Great Big Wymondham Green Week starts on Saturday June 8th and hurtles towards the following Saturday with dozens of things to see and do. The theme is "Swapping" - a green and sustainable way to go as well as loads of fun - interspersed with plenty of green events to keep you and your family entertained and busy throughout the week.

First up, our launch in the Market Square on the 8th with stalls – Greening Wymondham and others including Wymondham Nature Group (WyNG) and the fabulous Toad Watch. Or pootle down to Browick Community Orchard volunteer day with added seed-swap, or book your children on to a sow and pot-on class at MyHills in the afternoon – parents essential!

Clear Company are offering a Father’s Day present making afternoon on Sunday 9th, Swishing (sort of a super clothes swap) on the Friday evening, and the Sound Café Open Mic with Anto Morra’s music sale with music art on the Saturday, all at the Abbey School Rooms. And a cookery workshop – check out the times on the events page of our Greening Wymondham website (link below).

There’s a Megaswap at the Ayton House Meeting Rooms on the Tuesday morning, a craft skills swap at Poppy’s Pantry and a Uniform Bank swap at Roots Cafe on the Wednesday, and the popular Bat and Swift walk on the Friday organised by WyNG. The finale is a great family-friendly event at North Wymondham Community Centre on the afternoon of Saturday 15th with junk-modelling, origami, lots of upcycling including T-shirts, more swapping and loads of creative activities.

For a more tranquil time, our own Gabi Sciannimanico will be showing older children how kick-sampling works (me neither) to reveal what minibeasts lie beneath the Tiffey. Parents, again, essential and welcome - and book!

Enchanted Willow and StART will be putting on special events, too. So please check out our Great Big Wymondham Green Week section at greeningwymondham.org/great-big-green-week-2024 - or follow our daily notifications on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.
