December 2016 Newsletter

Dear Parents,

Children In Need - Thank you all so much once again for your more than generous donations to a charity that is so close to all our hearts. The total amount raised was £2200 and is still rising. Over the past 21 years we have raised in excess of £38,000.

Annual Christmas Trip – By popular demand we have arranged a Christmas outing to the Heritage Centre in Parkmill to see Santa. This years outing will be on Sunday 18th December. The cost per child is £8 which includes entry into the centre, a tour of the animals, a craft and a present from Santa. Accompanying adults are free. Santa’s grotto is open to the public from 12pm, however to avoid the long queues for Santa we have arranged for Santa to arrive earlier. We will be meeting at 10.30am. If you are interested in joining us then please let us know as soon as possible. Please note that payment will be made to the Heritage Centre on the day.

Our Christmas Party Week, which will be packed with festive activities and treats, will be held on Monday 19th December through to Friday 23rd December. Friday 23rd December and the following week will also be pyjama days for children and staff.

Closing dates for Christmas and New Year:
Monday 26th December – Boxing Day
Tuesday 27th December – Bank Holiday
Monday 2nd January – Bank Holiday

Thank you for your continuing support. May we take this opportunity of wishing you a Happy Christmas and a healthy and prosperous New Year.

Kind Regards,


Ann Khoshbin, staff and all the children at The Rose Garden.
