BREAKING NEWS: Elephants spotted in Winter Garden...

As part of our fantastic February Freebie activities, we headed down to the Winter Garden this week to decorate the newest member of our team, our fantastic 'Herd of Sheffield' elephant.

Children and young people from across the city were invited to draw their favourite out of school activity and use it to help decorate our elephant,. We had archery, dancing, singing, playing the piano, trampolining, drawing, swimming and even medieval reenactment!

There were also a number of special elephant themed activities including mask making, a trivia trail, and a naming the elephant competition! Huge thanks to all the children and families that helped us.

The Sheffield Hallam University Outreach team were also in the Winter Garden showcasing the fantastic entries to their elephant design competition, and delivering some activities as part of their community week.

Our elephant, along with that belonging to Sheffield Hallam will form part of a special trail displayed around the city from July to September as part of the Herd of Sheffield, so keep your eyes peeled for more details soon!
