Jake – Dans Little Helper

Jake dan the gardeners friendHello, my name is Jake, and I live with my mum Claire. I love helping Dan and want to be just like him when I grow up. When I am not at school I am out having fun with my best friend Jasmine. I can not wait for summer to come around so I get lots of time to go out and explore. Jasmine and I usually make up a packed lunch and set off on our bikes each morning on adventures.

When Dan is busy he lets me help which I really enjoy especially at lunchtime when he shares his box of Nan Fran ‘ s homemade cakes and biscuits.   I like to make the most of what surrounds me, there is always fun to be had on the beach or in the woods. In Three Little Woods, there is always something going on. Whether it be gardening down the allotment with Dan, the October conker festival or the Three Little Woods summer festival.

Living in Three Little Woods has taught me that you can make almost everything you need from what surrounds you. The house that I live in is built from local stone from the quarry and wood from the beach and woods.
When it gets cold my mum swaps her famous Raspberry jam with the local sheep-herder for the wool he has from shearing the sheep in the spring.

From this wool, my Mum can knit jumpers, hats, gloves and tea cosies. Next time you go for a walk take a look around and see what you can find from nature to make a useful craft.
