News and Dates for your diary

Welcome back from your Easter break. I hope you are all fully rested as we have a fun packed very short half term. Could I ask all parents now it is getting warmer please provide Sun hats and Sun cream named in your child’s bag.

As you are all aware we were subject to a spate of vandalism. The police have spoken to all the people involved and we are now getting on with the task of replacing the equipment and toys.

Our stall at the market plus the Easter bonnet parade raised £450 pounds towards replacement toys.

We have also set up a Just giving page (link below) to try and raise the rest of the money .

I would also like to thank all our parents who have kindly donated money and toys to help with this. Everyone support has been amazing. Myself and the staff have been very touched by your response.

Our new CCTV is now being installed a big thanking to Greg Finney Managing Director Practical Audio Visual who provide all his labour for free. Also I massive thank you has The two gentleman who have paid for the materials costing over £800.

We are also having our new storage Shed being custom made by The Shed Shop in Swadlincote for a reduced rate of £450 and it is also delivered and installed for free. The shed is to ensure our new toys are always locked away .
