Fly me to the moon
'Fly me to the moon' was the theme for Saltaire Arts Trail's family activities this year, and the gardens around the Victoria Hall and Shipley College were buzzing with activity. There was some serious den-building going on (aiming to build a space-station) and all manner of painting and crafts with a space theme: build your own rocket, make glow-in-the dark alien brains, hunt to find the aliens lurking around the village. I even saw some youngsters being guided into science experiments - mixing Alka-Seltzer and vinegar to fire capsules of messages to the moon.
