News from our latest events

Coffee Morning – 17 May

It was lovely to see some parents attend the Coffee Morning on Thursday 17th May and have a catch up with Pre-school Staff & Committee members.  

The biscuits were very nice and the under 2.5yr olds enjoyed having a little play corner to keep them entertained whilst the grown ups chatted.

 

Cake Sale – 25 May

Thank you so much for all of the yummy donations for our cake sale, we had so many lovely things to sell. Thank you also to everyone who came, bought the cakes & had a go on the raffle.  With your help we raised £205, which will go towards the general running costs of the pre-school.

The Olaf cake was amazing (thank you so much to Michelle who made the cake for us, you are a very talented lady).  The cake was won by a member of the Committee who very kindly donated it to the ‘Mighty Magnus Medicine Fund’. They were able to pass it on to the family of a young boy whose birthday was that weekend (for a great donation to the Magnus Fund)!

Rock Painting Event – 30 May

Thank you also to everyone that joined us at the Rock-painting event during the half term week.  We hope you had lots of fun and enjoyed getting your faces painted. With your support we raised £130, which will go towards the purchase of more crafts items for the children.

 

 

Easter Fun Event 24 March 2018

 

Thank you to everyone who attended our Easter Fun Event.  The weather wasn’t brilliant but it didn’t stop us all having lots of fun.  

The children enjoyed finding all of the Easter pictures to win a yummy Easter Egg prize and were great at making Easter bunny hats and colouring in Easter finger puppets on the crafts tables.

Our Easter crazy golf game; ‘egg & spoon’ races and jumping in to the bubbles (being made by our bubble machines) were all enjoyed.

Many children had their face painted, hair braided and/or a temporary tattoo put on, they looked amazing.

The Lucky Dip provided some exciting prizes and the ‘Name the Lamb’ competition was popular with ‘Peppa’ being the winning name.

There was also a Target bowling game; a massive Tombola stall; an Easter selfie area with Betty Bunny & Lauren Lamb to assist; some delicious cakes, biscuits & chocolate eggs in the refreshment area and some general toys out in the Little ones play area.

The event raised an amazing £390.

Thank you to everyone who came & supported us/ donated prizes and to all of the Committee, parent helpers & Staff that helped on the day, we couldn’t run it without you.

Valentines Disco 10th February

It was amazing to have a sold out event for our valentines disco this year and to enjoy the music and lights provided by Paul from Echo Disco.  We were particularly lucky to have hot dog sausages & rolls supplied by Sauls of Spratton butchers, which were extremely popular (in addition to the pizzas and other refreshment goodies).  Children (and adults) enjoyed the glowsticks, LED finger lights & punch balloons on offer, which gave the disco a great feeling & atmosphere.

The staff and committee at the event had a wonderful time and feedback has been that everyone enjoyed it.

Thank you to everyone who bought tickets & attended the event and to everyone who helped the event take place (and of course to Paul from Echo Disco for keeping us all dancing).
