News and Updates from the Committee:
The renovation at Brampton is almost finished and we are all really pleased by how wonderful the building is now looking inside. The main room is brighter and more open, there is more space in the children’s toilets and the office is now big enough to actually work in!
We would like to focus our attention to the outdoor spaces at both of our settings and on Sunday 8th October, between 10 and 11.30, the Committee would like to invite you to join them at Brampton to enhance the outside space there.
This is also an excellent chance to find out more about the committee: who we are, why we fundraise, what we do and how you can support us either as a new committee member or as a parent.
There will be face painting for children, hot drinks and bacon rolls for sale and with your help we can enhance the outside space at Brampton with planting and bulbs.
The committee are also keen to see the outdoor space at Hilltop enhanced, so we will also be taking a selection of pots and plants up to Hilltop and spending time improving the outdoor space with the children and staff later on in the week. If you would like to help us when we visit Hilltop please let a member of staff know.
The building at Brampton has been refurbished over the summer, full details coming soon!
But thanks to all the fund-raising over the last few years – look how wonderful our indoor space is now!
During the summer holidays Brampton Pre-School has undergone a major refurbishment and improvements.
Although the playground is not currently in use until work has been completed the inside of the building is up and running thanks to the hard work of all the staff.
We are all looking forward to welcoming our new and returning children and families to the setting on their allocated sessions when term starts at both settings on Monday 4th September at 9:00am.
The children from Brampton had a wonderful time at St. Joseph’s School taking part in the Mini Music Maker session. They have been working really hard to learn lots of songs over the past few weeks and were invited into the school to sing them with the Reception children at St. Josephs – we even spotted a few ex-Brampton children looking very grown up!
We really enjoyed singing and made some animal headbands to go with our songs. Thank you to all the staff for organising and for all the volunteers that walked the children over to the school.
Thank you to all the helpers and visitors to our stall at the Raft Race on the 9th July. We had a very busy day with lots of games, crafts, lucky dip and tombola and we raised £190. Thank you to The Attic for sponsoring the stall.
