Thank you to the team at Fat Leaf who donated a bench for the pre-school garden, it looks great and will be a lovely addition to the outside space as we continue to improve the outdoor area. 

Tom Franklin
The children, staff, committee and parents would like to say a massive thank you to Tom Franklin for  making a canopy for our garden mud kitchen.

We are so grateful for all the time and effort he has volunteered.
