Ducklings Pre-School Creaton

We have been very excited to meet a new baby recently. The children helped to change the baby and feed her. They were so absorbed in her, asking fantastic intelligent questions, talking about size, growth, age, and care. The children showed empathy which is difficult when you are 2-4!

Whilst we are learning about growth we have started to plant the seeds in our green house, some fast growing and some slow, the children are caring, feeding and weeding and eventually will harvest and taste their own produce.

We are starting to think about Easter the birth of new animals and the care of them, learning incredible crafts and the making bonnets for our Easter parade.

We have had many new starters recently which we have welcomed with open arms so we are getting quite busy however we do have a few spaces available after Easter.

We take children from the age of 2 years- 4 years 11months, sparking imaginations and motivating children to explore, investigate, challenge and learn through play.

2 year funded children, 30 hours free child care, and EYPP welcome. Come and visit our setting and see what we can offer your children. We open Monday-Friday 9am -3pm (offering flexible sessions).

Phone Ducklings Pre-School 01604 505172 to book a stay and play session with us.

CREATON SINGERS

March was a very busy month for the Creaton Singers with 2 public performances planned.

On 3rd March the Singers were expecting to perform at a concert in St Michael and All Angels Church in Creaton, organised

by Susannah Carr to raise funds for the new Community Shop. Sadly due to the arctic conditions, snow, ice and wind the difficult decision was made to postpone the concert. Anyone who bought a ticket can have their money refunded or hold on to it for next time.

On 17th March the Singers provided the entertainment for the Friends of St Michael’s History Group St Patrick’s Night held in the Village Hall. The evening was a sell out and a good time was had by all.The delicious 4 course dinner was interspersed with traditional Irish songs and a rousing singalong concluded the evening with music especially written for the Irish Blessing finale. The committee of the Friends of St Michael History Group wish to thank everyone for their support and generosity.

After a very short recovery period (!) the Creaton Singers have started practising for Creaton in Bloom on Sunday 3rd June when they will perform at 2:30pm and 3:30pm in the URC.

COMMUNITY VILLAGE SHOP

The share issue for the shop closed at the end of January and reached the target of £80,000! Thank you to all who have bought shares. Creaton Community Benefit Society now have 124 members representing 90 households.

We are now awaiting the result of a grant application and once that has been approved, then it will be all systems go.

We are still looking for volunteers to work in the shop. So that the shop can operate on a sound financial footing, it will be reliant on volunteers, working alongside the paid staff, helping to serve customers and keeping the shelves stacked. If you can spare a couple of hours a week - or even every other week - please contact us (details below).

For more information about Creaton Village Shop, contact Richard Hollingum on 07887 652599 or richard@creatonvillageshop.co.uk. You can also look at our website, www.creatonvillageshop.co.uk and we are on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Let us know you are there.
