A brilliant team of Mummies and Daddies supported the Pre-School by running the Bristol 10k!
The runners were Rob Dyer, Ralph Eva, Louise Hopkins, Hannah Lynch, Victoria Rowe, Felicity Sherring, Aristi Taylor, Debbie Tiernan, Andrew Wedlock, Abbie Wilford and John Wilford (some of whom are pictured below)! So far they have raised £200, however the donation page is still open for further donations.
The team were organised by Abbie Wilford (Committee Fundraiser) and she took to the challenge by dressing as a Princess Superhero! Fabulous work team, Thank You for your support!
We are entering the raft race this year! We will be looking for help from parents to build the raft and then the children will be designing a flag for the boat. There will be an initial meeting on Thursday 11th May 2017 at Hall and Woodhouse at 7.30pm where we can make a master plan to build the winning boat!
We are especially keen to hear from anyone who will be able to supply any items for the raft, such as unused Barrels and anything else buoyant!
Please let us know if you can make it by contacting our Raft Race Coordinator – Ross: 07837555172. Thank you!
The committee will be hosting a cake sale to celebrate Mother’s Day at both settings.
As part of our World book Day Celebrations we are encouraging children to dress as a book character on Thursday 2nd March 2017. This is entirely optional! We are also encouraging children to bring in their favourite books to share at Pre-School this week.
If you want to find out more, contact Abbie Wilford (Brampton Mum and Committee member) at the gate or firstname.lastname@example.org

The Christmas season was full of fun at both Brampton and Hilltop Pre-Schools this year.
We celebrated with our first joint nativity at St. Peters Church. The staff worked really hard to achieve this and we really appreciate them giving up their evening to support such an important part of the Pre-School year. The children did fantastically to learn all of the songs, and to sit so brilliantly in front of so many parents – we are all so proud of them. And a huge thank you to all the parents who bought raffle tickets and mince pies – we raised £111.95 for the Pre-School. Thank you to the parents, Sainsburys and Majestic Wines for their donations to the raffle.
The staff also gave up another evening to run a stall at the Victorian Evening. This raised an impressive £176.10! A big thank you to all those who donated items to the stall or supported it.
