Children's Parties on the Isle of Wight

Our two party leaders are Angela Hewitt and Holly Squires who have been running children’s workshops, parties and leading school parties and for many years, both are fully CRB checked.

Our parties start with an activity at the tables run by Angela and Holly while the hosts greet guests. We then take the children either into the meadow or the woods for an activity (3 and 4 year olds will need parents to stay and play) We bring the children back to the tables for food and cake then they can take off for a final activity and possibly a  hunt for the party bags in the meadow.

Naturezones is a Nature Reserve and therefore we ask that all litter/rubbish be taken home with you.

Parking is very limited so car sharing or drop off is advisable. Toilet facilities are available.

Naturezones is a ‘Whatever the weather’ organisation and advise partygoers to come prepared for the forecast. Sturdy footwear is advisable/wellies following rain/heavy dew.

In the event of heavy rain we have the use of the barn for activities but we prefer to get out in the rain.
