The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch

Date: 21 to 25 Oct / Time: 2pm - 3pm

Mr Grinling the lighthouse keeper tends his light come rain or shine. Every day Mrs Grinling makes him a delicious lunch and sends it out across the sea to the lighthouse. But Mr Grinling isn’t the only one who enjoys the tasty food. Some greedy seagulls keep stealing his lunch! Can Mrs Grinling come up with an ingenious plan to make sure the lighthouse keeper gets his lunch?
