Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre

This week Jodrell Centre is offering Thanksgiving week, supported by Heritage Lottery Fund.
This observatory hosts a number of radio telescopes and has played a significant role in the research of meteors, quasars, pulsars and so on. The main telescope is Lovell telescope which is the third largest steerable telescope in the world.

          Children got an opportunity to have a telescope walking tours and lots of exciting fun learning in Jodrell Observatory and I was at home taking rest after my  last week's episodes. They joined with the friendly explainers as they stroll around the base of the Lovell Telescope.

Some sweets were decorated with little labels of 'God loves you' were handed over to the children who came for treat which evolved from an ancient practise of begging for soul cakes and promising their prayers for the souls.

Autumn

The gardens and trees  have flowered and fruited. Finaly , it is autumn. The brilliant time to grab your wellies,coats ans head to the woods. The leaves turning to vibrant colours and on windy days you will see lots of leaves swirling in the wind. The prime time of the year for nature and church.

 Some of our visits during this time in Felcrow park. A beautiful location for children to enjoy this season, hidden in the woods,lots of cold water to splash, stones and have fun.




Some pictures in Chorlton water park on the feast of St Francis of Asisi who loved animals and birds. Of all the creatures, birds were Francis' pets. Whenever he preached, they would gather and crowd the trees, chimneys and towers. Geo is feeding the ducks and he quite enjoys feeding and watching the birds.






3 chickens arrived in our home and little ones very keen to feed and look after though bit scared. Jochayan busy making chicken run and clearing off things in the back garden for the chicken.


Children are making some autumn crafts by dipping maple leaves( collected from park) in melted wax to decorate and was fun for them.
