July News

Milwich & District Produce Guild

Our May meeting was a visit to The Garth, at Milford.  Twenty members enjoyed the hospitality of Anita and David Wright, who showed us their wonderful garden with its areas of rare trees, unusual shrubs, and many varieties of hostas and ferns, planted at different levels. There was a different view at each and every turn, and when we had thoroughly explored the garden, we moved into the house for tea, and a tableful of cakes.  Thank you Anita and David, it was a memorable visit.

We are out and about again for our July meeting, on the 25th.  This time we travel to Idlerocks Farm at Spot Acre.  Will members please meet at Idlerocks at 7pm.

Apart from visits, and trips out, our meetings are usually held on the fourth Thursday of the month, at All Saints’ Village Hall, beginning at 8pm.

Green Lea Nursery and wraparound care

Well the end of term is fast approaching, and we have a very busy remaining few weeks. This year we have decided to follow in Green Lea school’s footsteps and hold our annual graduation in the church, we have pencilled in July 15th but this date is to be confirmed, letters will sent to all parents shortly to give details and running schedule.

This term we have been looking at our time in nursery, the friends we have made, memories we have, how we have all grown into the individuals we are today and onto our next step into school life. The hungry caterpillar book has been our base for lots of our learning this term, as he grows and changes into the beautiful butterfly. Claire with the help of the children has been working hard on a lovely hungry caterpillar display which incorporates a memory tree for all the children to share their memories of Green Lea nursery. We also have some real caterpillars that we are caring for, and fingers crossed we can see them turn into butterflies and released in our garden before the end of term.

All the staff at Green Lea nursery would like to say a big thank you to parents, grandparents, aunties, uncles, friends and the local community for all their support this academic year. This year has been a big year for the nursery, going from a charity, committee run pre-school to a governor led nursery that is fully incorporated into Green Lea first school. We have had a few niggles, but with the support of school and nursery staff, the change has gone well and we are now looking forward to more exciting new changes over the next school year. (watch this space)

And finally the biggest thank you must go to all the children, who make the nursery the vibrant, exciting, energetic and fun place to learn, on behalf of all the nursery staff. It’s been a pleasure and a privilege to have been part of your early educational journey, and we are all exceptionally proud of the lovely, caring, kind, clever little people you are all growing into.

Green Lea Nursery offers the 30 hours funding (subject to criteria) we are also signed up to the tax free child care scheme, please see a member of staff for more information.

Green Lea Nursery runs Monday-Friday, sessions are 9.00am-1.30pm or 9.00am-3.00pm. Green Lea wraparound care sessions are 7.30am-9.00am and/or 3.00pm-5.45pm (term time only) for any further information please contact 01889 505309.
