Fundraising Success

Well we were certainly very busy yesterday at pre-school!  Although our 'Sports Day' was affected by the inclement weather we still managed to raise £200 and then we had our Take That Tribute Evening which raised an amazing £720!

A big thank you to everyone involved with both events, especially to our brilliant band 'The Greatest' who gave a fantastic performance and to everyone who came along and joined in the fun.  Everyone at Springfield really appreciates the effort and involvement of so many people to raise so much money in one day.  Events like these ensure that we can continue to provide top quality care and education with the best resources possible - thank you!

We have received information that the 'travellers' have moved off the car park as of Friday 13th April.

Therefore pre-school should be unaffected by them and re-open for the Summer Term as planned on Tuesday 17th April (Monday 16th April is an Inset Day).

Many thanks for your patience and understanding in this matter.

Some of you maybe aware that a group of 'travellers' have taken up residency in the council car park adjacent to pre-school.

The travellers moved into the car park on the evening of Sunday 1st April.  We then contacted the council on Monday 2nd April; who informed us that legal proceedings have been initiated to 'move on' the travellers but that this could 'take up to two weeks to forcibly move them on'.

The current situation is that we expect the 'travellers' to be 'moved on' by the end of Tuesday 17th April.

Pre-school is closed on Monday 16th April (Inset Day) and is due to re-open on Tuesday 17th April.  At the present time we still intend to re-open as planned on the Tuesday but should the situation change we will advise all parents via our text service.

Parents are advised to consider their parking arrangements when attending pre-school.

Any problems or questions please do not hesitate to get in contact, either via email on or telephone on 07960 983423.

Thank you for your patience and understanding in this matter,
Jayne & The Team
