We have really been enjoying the term so far at Warrington Playcentre. Of note we have been enjoying time spent outside on the climbing frame and in the sand pit. The children have been watching with interest as the adults have made a start on a new raised vegetable and flower garden. It will be great for the children to be able to observe the developments in their garden and for them to witness nurture and enjoy the produce.

We want to acknowledge the passing on of Mr Gilbert Carlyle. He was a great neighbour and friend to us and it is with pleasure we know he liked to walk our Wildthings garden. Our thoughts are with Lyne and family.

We have recently been doing some fundraising to keep up with playcentre running costs. We want to acknowledge and thank Rose and Jeremy Laurenson, who donated some peonies which have been sold, with the proceeds going to the playcentre. Thank you also to Kathryn and Bryan Clarke who supported our fundraising so generously at Warrington Market. We have a raffle which is going to be run over the coming weeks, again to raise funds for our running costs. There are some really great prizes including tickets for the Speights's Brewery Tour, cookbooks and apparel from Speight's, a gorgeous food basket donated by Heather at Blueskin General Store and vouchers for the Blueskin Nursery Cafe, amongst other goodies, donated by Clare at the Blueskin Nursery. Many thanks to our contributors. Thank you to the people of Blueskin Bay for your anticipated support with this fundraiser and good luck because it is well worth winning.

We had a lovely celebration this week, in dress up, to celebrate Leon turning five. We wish you well Leon for all the great things in store for you at school. We farewell Debz, Leon's Mum, who has been a brilliant treasurer and wish to thank her for all the hard work she has done.

We will be enjoying our Christmas party at playcentre 18 December, during session time. If you are a friend of the Warrington Playcentre, past or present, or you are interested in coming along, please join us. We wish everyone a safe and happy holiday season.

Warrington Playcentre is open Wednesday and Friday 9.15-12.15. Last session this year is Wednesday, 18 December.
