After two years of work and dedication, the Countryside Restoration Trust (CRT)’s Mosaic education programme is now officially launched and open to children from local primary schools and Beavers and Cubs in the local Surrey area.

Launched just in time for the start of the new school year, Mosaic got off to a busy start with the arrival of 27 children from 1st Grayshott and 1st Haslemere Cubs at Pierrepont Farm on Saturday 18 September. The Cubs completed their Navigator Activity Adventure during a three-hour action-packed visit.

The Cubs were divided into four groups and taught how to use a compass. They used their new-found navigation skills to locate four activity stations around the farm. Once found, Cubs had to work as a team to complete wildlife themed challenges. Challenges included finding and identifying different leaves, hunting for minibeasts in the woodland and learning more about underwater creatures in the wildlife pond.

The smiling faces of the children in attendance were testament to the well-organised and enjoyable visit that Mosaic provided. Sally Frederick, the Assistant District Commissioner of Haslemere Cubs described the afternoon as a “ten out of ten day” that was “so well organised”.

Where one pack goes, another closely follows, and on 25 September, two more Cub packs visited Pierrepont Farm. Sue Styles, leader of the 1st Hindhead and 1st Churt Cubs, said “it was brilliant”.

Gerry Turner, Education Manager at the Countryside Restoration Trust, said: “I am determined that the Mosaic activity adventures for local Beavers and Cubs will strengthen the important role that the great outdoors has played in children’s lives over the past year.”
