We asked our youngest members a couple of questions to get their perspective on what we are doing at the site most weekends!
What do you like about coming to the site?
Alex: Tractor, digging.
Sylvie: Watering the plants and trampoline.
Grace: I like playing on the trampoline and watching movies in the caravan.
Lucy: I like that we are not going to be individual families but a whole family.
Lydia: There is sweet stuff to eat and I like having my own tree in the orchard. I like that when I visit Nana and Grandad I will see Emily and Lucy too.
Raymond: I am looking forward to our house being built so we can live here and do work here more easily, like wall building and gardening. I just like being part of the project because it makes me feel important. It is great to run around and play in the orchard now it is finished.
Luca: I like doing work at the farm, making a den and gardening.
Emily: I like building walls and helping with the jobs and being in the polytunnel.
What will life be like in the future when all the houses and site are finished?
Sylvie: My house. I like fun, playing toys.
Grace: I like having bunk beds with Luca.
Lucy: The best it can be. It will be harder for adults as you will have more children to look after.
Lydia: Fun and happy. It will be easier for adults as the children can play together.
Raymond: Fun just to walk a couple of metres to get to each other’s houses. All grouped together so we don’t have to drive to see each other.
Luca: I am looking forward to my house being built so Ray and I can have midnight feasts.
Emily: Really nice because we get to see each other more. We can build more stuff because we live closer.
Thank you to Alex (2), Sylvie (2), Grace (4), Lucy (6), Lydia (6), Raymond (8), Luca (8) and Emily (9) for all their great comments.
