Playgroup's new look!

Playgroup has undergone a fantastic transformation over the summer holiday! 

A kind playgroup Grandad has been very busy over the six weeks decorating the whole room and putting up new cabinets and shelving. The lower half of two walls are now also magnetic, thanks to British Gypsum's magnetic plaster! We've purchased hundreds of magnets for the the children and playgroup ladies to use. 

I'm sure you'll all agree that the room is looking great, and the learning environment for the little ones has been vastly improved!

A big thank you to all volunteers that have helped to make this happen.
