Friends of Ducklings

Please return your slip or let us know if you will be coming to our Duckling Family Day on Sunday 12th May as soon as possible as we need to begin to order food and refreshments for the day. This event is always great fun and hugely successful and we hope all families will join us. A programme for the day will be finalised after our next Friends of Ducklings meeting on Tuesday 30th April. Please come and join us.

We still need help with the following:

  • New/nearly new soft toys.
  • Raffle prizes – restaurants and pub vouchers, soft play, farm and zoo vouchers, wine and other gifts.
  • Help to set up from 10am and clear away at 3pm.

Please let us know if you are able to help with any of the above. We would also love to hear any new ideas that you may have for the day.

Autumn/Christmas Fayre

We had another wonderful successful Duckling Autumn/Christmas Fayre. It was lovely to see so many duckling families and school families come through the door on such a chilly afternoon. Thank you to everyone for your kind donations, delicious homemade cakes and most of all your support on the day. We raised and amazing £1167.01

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.

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.
