It’s the crime of the century that’s too much to bear. Bear-boy-band singing sensation Baby Bear has been kidnapped! When a ransom note is discovered asking for an unlimited supply of ‘Just Right Porridge’ all hands and paws point straight at Goldilocks. Facing a life sentence of uncomfortable beds, chairs and cold porridge she turns to the only cool-cat capable of cracking the case, the mysterious super-sleuth in boots known to all as the ‘Pet Detective’. Goldilocks discovers that sometimes when everything seems too hard, all you need is a friendly feline and a whole lot of perseverance to make it all just purrrrrrrrrfect.

This year, from 10.00 – 11.15am, these children will get a pot to decorate and plant up with seedlings. We ask that each child brings a $2 donation to help us cover the cost of the pots.
