As we have not been able to hold any fund raising events during the last year we are going ahead with a grand spring/Easter raffle. We have some prizes, however if you can donate anything, offer a skill, or are able to resource vouchers of any kind please let me know?

Each family will be given or sent five strips of tickets and we would love you to help your child sell these to families and friends. We realise that this may not be quite as easy as in normal circumstances and we really appreciate your support with this.

Tickets cost £1 per strip of five tickets and more are available if requested. Please can you return one copy of each strip sold clearly marked on the reverse side with a name and contact number no later than Friday 5th March.

The raffle will be drawn the following week when we will contact our lucky winners. For those parents receiving this letter through the post we have included a stamped addressed envelope for your sold tickets. With your help we can hopefully sell lots and lots of tickets.

Who we are

A core group of interested parents formed Friends of Duckling Nursery in 2004 to raise funds and organise social events. During these years, families have moved on but we have always continued to have new parents or returning families ready to take over.

Our current staff members are:

Mrs Sheila Homer, Miss Courtney Burnette, Miss Bethany Mattacks

We have an ever changing group of parents involved in helping and organising events.  Do let us know if you would like to be involved.

We need help!

The AGM is held during an evening in September at the nursery. Subsequent meetings throughout the year are held on designated Tuesday evenings, 8pm at the fox and goose pub (CM1 3SN).  We would like to invite you to join us. The committee requires limited commitment, is very informal and lots of fun!

The members help to prepare, set up and run elements of each event. However please don’t feel pressure to do it all. If you can’t commit to attending the meetings, we are more than happy if you can just set up, help out on a stall or help clear away at the end.

Money raised by Friends of Ducklings has bought some wonderful resources and equipment including our new treehouse and tumble bar.

If you are interested or would simply like to know more about us and what you can do, please feel free to speak to any of us or get in touch.

We hope you can come and join us.
