HATTY HEDGEHOG & HER WOODLAND FRIENDS

MEET HATTY HEDGEHOG & HER WOODLAND FRIENDS!

Once upon a time, in a vibrant forest filled with tall trees and colourful flowers, there lived a friendly hedgehog named Hatty. Hatty was not your ordinary hedgehog - she had multi-coloured fluffy spikes that stood out in the midst of the greenery. You are invited to come along to meet Hatty and her woodland friends in Roehampton Library, on Tuesday 28th May, 2.00-3.30pm.

This crafting and storytelling event is brought to you by the Alton Regen Team and Roehampton Library.

Children will be able to decorate Hatty and her woodland friends, bringing them to life before listening to a story about what Hatty and her friends get up to. All attendees will receive an animal mask.
