Platinum Jubilee Celebrations

Management Committee
The nursery was full of chatter, game-playing and red, white and blue as we welcomed parents with their children for a Jubilee themed tea party on Friday 27 May.

With plenty of bunting decorating the building we also created London themed cardboard vehicles in the gardens. Royal activities included pin the tail on the corgi, red white and blue sensory rice and crown designing. There were also sandwiches and cakes for everyone to enjoy in the sunshine. 


It was the first time parents have come into the Nursery for an event since the pandemic - and the first time for many that they had stepped inside at all. 

Barbs James, nursery co-manager said: "It's been over two years since we last welcomed parents into the nursery for a celebration, and what better occasion than the Queen's Jubilee? It was wonderful to see our garden full of children with their families playing royal games and enjoying cakes together."

We loved seeing so many parents and carers having fun. It was a happy afternoon."

There was a charity collection generating around £100 in donations, thank you to everyone who gave. 

Thank you to Marina Jacklin for the beautiful photos.
