Re-visiting the fairy village

By | March 20, 2016

We were really upset to hear that someone had ruined the local fairy village recently. A lot of time and effort goes into making something like this and I find it difficult to understand why anyone would ruin something which brings so much pleasure for children. I’m glad we visited when it had just opened as it was wonderful to see all the fairy doors set in the trees. A few have been re-built but sadly not on the scale it once was.

As we had some visitors staying we decided to pop along to visit the fairy houses.

Little Sis wrote a letter which we carefully placed in a plastic bag and took with us. We left it underneath the fairy post box – she has lots of mail to answer!

The children ran around looking for the other doors so it was difficult to know how to explain to them what had happened. Little Sis loved the Fisherman Fairy house which was sadly no longer there.

There’s a lovely little stream in the park so the children played pooh sticks until we were eventually able to drag them away.

    What a shame the Fairy village has been raided. It only takes a few children encouraging one another and these things happen. I lost a load of our specially made fairy stones. A group of older children had thrown them in the river. This was over a year ago and thankfully it has never happened again, but it is sad it should happen at all. It is thoughtless of those who want to enjoy the fun of a fairy area. It sounds like you all made the best of things and thank goodness for pooh sticks! What remains of the fairy village there looks gorgeous and I love the idea of fairy mail. Thank you for joining me for #CountryKids

    Hi Jenny

    The new village is now installed, I have Little Sis’s mail but have a month’s worth to catch up on. The Fisherman is back now and has a great new rod and a net. There’s also a Washerwoman and the Fairy Dust Maker is back. Hope you’ll visit soon (before it all ‘goes’ again)
