We were delighted when M&S announced they were going to send a team of volunteers to help give our outdoor area a bit of TLC during their National Volunteer Day in early June. Despite some looming clouds and the odd drop of rain, the afternoon was a great success, with 20 volunteers (and about 15 little people) getting stuck into a whole manner of jobs. Fence painting, pressure washing, cleaning out the wendy house and shed, painting over the old mural, window cleaning, weeding and planting, to name but a few.
Our enormous thanks to the wonderful team of 11 volunteers from M&S High Wycombe, Marsh and Princes Risborough who worked tirelessly to achieve the long list of jobs we'd challenged ourselves to complete. Thank you!
We were delighted to learn our grant application to the Coop Local Community fund was successful! We will feature as one of their local three charities in 2019, which members near the Walters Ash and Princes Risborough stores can support us until October.
Our ambition is to enable the children within our setting to explore, learn, and develop confidence and self esteem, through hands on experiences in our outdoors environment. We hope to invest in new sports and fitness resources, grow plants and flowers to share for the benefit of our local community and introduce teaching resources to nurture ‘healthy minds’ in our children, staff and parent community.
