3rd place for our carnival float entry - A big thank you to all who were involved with this years carnival float entry. All the hard work didn't go unnoticed and our “Mary Mary quite contrary, how does your garden grow” float was placed 3rd by the judges. We really enjoyed getting the children involved in making the bells, shells, butterflies and head wear for it and it was lovely to see them all enjoying themselves during the parade on the day.

Over the Easter holidays the committee have been working hard on the out door spaces at both sites.
The Weatheralls has had a big facelift, clearing out all the storage units to give more space. Fresh paint on the fence and the mud kitchen. Trellis installed with some greenery. Also lovely new bright planters which the children will be planting up with flowers, vegetables and herbs. New mirrors installed in the walls. Really has made a big difference. We will be continuing with this over the coming weeks to make it as lovely as possible.
St Andrews now has a designated wildlife area which is behind a live willow fence. It is all barked with tree trunk seats, bird boxes and feeders, bee and insect houses. This area is to encourage imaginative play so there are lots of hidden fairies and elves and also fairy doors and windows. There have been raised beds built which again will be filled by the children with flowers, vegetables and herbs. We are hoping they will be able to try the things they grow like tomatoes, peas, cucumbers etc. There are planters filled with sensory plants that smell and feel nice. Lots of new sensory things around like wind spinners and chimes of different types. This is an evolving garden which will continue along the theme of sensory and wildlife in the future.
We hope you love it as much as we do and can’t wait for all the children to play and have fun in the new areas.Outdoor spaces, spring 2019
