CHURCH TRAILS FOR CHILDREN IN WEST SURREY
This project was started in the Wessex Area in 2007, utilising the skills of members in both Church Recording and Young Arts. The idea is to produce quiz sheets aimed at 8 to 12 year olds, challenging them on items of cultural heritage to be found within a church. The parents (or teachers) have a detailed set of answers, to ensure that the right explanation is given!
The project was such a success, being the source of much fun and information for children and adults alike, that it has now spread into many other Areas of the UK.
NADFAS has developed sets of templates for the quiz sheets and answers, so each project lasts for only a few weeks and keeps the cost low for the sponsoring DFAS.
Training for the Future. A successful free workshop on Church Trails was held on 15 March 2010.
