Firstly, a very big thank you to all who came to the May Ball on Friday night. We had a wonderful time, shared great company, strutted our stuff on the dance floor (!) and raised some pennies for The Nest. So far, we have taken over £400 in the raffle, but there is still an opportunity to buy tickets all week in pre-school. We are also still taking silent bids for the children's art work and the two night stay at the De Veres hotel (with all the trimmings) so pop in to Cheapside to make your bid! We will draw the raffle and reveal the winning bids on Thursday.
This week, we will be planting seeds and learning about growing, unfortunately not at Gardening Grandma and Grandad's, as Grandma has had an operation, but at our allotment. We have been given the opportunity to share an allotment with Cheapside Primary, so we will be making regular trips to get our vegetables and fruits planted. If anyone would like to give us a hand,please let us know! We are very excited to have the chance to grow produce and learn more about wildlife, so we are very happy for any suggestions, ideas or donations to make the experience for all the children fantastic.

Orienteering - Thursday 19th May
Please join us if you can on Thursday for our annual 'Cheapside village orienteering challenge' It's always a fun morning where we send you and your children on a course around the village to gather clues to make a word. Once you have completed the challenge, the children receive a medal and we all have tea and cakes! Everybody (friends and family too) are welcome even if it's not your child's normal session. Don't worry if you have work commitments and it is your child's regular session, as the staff will be happy to take them around the course. If you would like any clarification, please ask. Don't forget to wear suitable footwear, as the terrain can get quite tough and the event will go ahead, rain or shine!!
If you have any cakes to donate, please drop them into pre-school as near to Thursday as possible, thank you.
