Thank you !!

A Big Thank you to our Community partners at the Walkway Centre– they very kindly provided the funding for the buses taking us to W5 and the Fitness Freddy sessions which we are enjoying.

Another Big Thank you to Aarons Mum and Kyles Mum for all their hard work organising the Easter Baskets, and Alexanders Granny for organising the ballots.


Our theme this month is fairy tales. If anyone has any old costumes they could send it we would really appreciate it.
