Christmas Raffle

It is that time of year again when your nursery needs you.  We are collecting prizes for our annual Christmas raffle.  We ask that each child donates a prize.   For example a bottle of wine, box of biscuits, box of chocolates or a voucher.  If there are any parents who have some spare time and don’t mind asking any local or big businesses (Marks & Spencer, Tesco) for a donation, there is a letter in the office, which includes our registered charity number.  Raffle tickets will be sent home on the 6 December, please do try to sell as many as possible.   

Children’s Christmas Songs

This year the children will be dressing up and singing Christmas songs at the nursery.  It will still be a ticket event and the tickets will go on sale from Monday 2 December priced at £1.00.    If your child does not attend nursery on the day/time of their show, please speak to your Key person to arrange a suitable time to bring them in on the day.
