Slings and Swordfights!

Several Sheffield Slingers went to a medieval weekend at Wentworth Garden Centre today. The sun shone, we had a picnic, played with the skittles and giant Connect4, laughed at the stocks and the sheep, showed off our slings and watched several falconry displays and battle re-enactments. Naturally, the boys (and one tomboy girl) wanted to join in with their own toy swords – and did with great gusto – it was a lovely day (with ice-cream, too!) Hurray for summer! With us was a Connecta, a Babies in Space, a Melkaj, a Rose and Rebellion, a ring sling and a wrap used for a back carry and a hip carry. We saw quite a lot of forward facing carriers and a Close Carrier with a happily snoozing baby, and a LittleLife framed rucksack style carrier.

Here are a few pictures.

Lots more days like this coming up – check out our upcoming events for more, or get in touch – we plan these events in our FB group, come and join in the fun!
