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.
