Nick was fantastic with the children. He was very engaging, and it was great to be finally able to be outside in fine weather! Children loved the boomerang throwing activity :)

Nick the Stockman was a big hit! The children loved having a go with the boomerangs and the whips, as well as making damper. Nick even went out of his way to attempt to make gluten free damper for one of the coeliac children which was extremely appreciated.
