Spooky party fun at nurs­ery

The Wokingham Paper - - EDUCATION -

CHIL­DREN and their par­ents and car­ers got into the Hal­lowe’en spirit at an Au­tumn fundraiser at Meadow Nurs­ery last month.

The an­nual event, which took place at the pre school in Mur­ray Road on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 19, had a fancy dress theme and the tots donned their spook­i­est out­fits.

More than £1,000 was raised on the night, with vis­i­tors guess­ing the weight of the pump­kin and how many conkers in the jar, as well as pin­ning the spi­der on the web, pig rac­ing and of course lucky dip and face paints.

A bar­be­cue and mulled wine kept the adults en­ter­tained. There was also an au­tumn themed colour­ing com­pe­ti­tion, with prizes for the best two en­tries.

Deb­bie Hill, nurs­ery man­ager, said: “The au­tumn evening is al­ways a fan­tas­tic event for our chil­dren, and pro­vides fam­i­lies with a fun al­ter­na­tive to Fire­works Night.

“This year we were blessed with fan­tas­tic weather and the event raised Funds which will be in­vested back into the nurs­ery to make im­prove­ments to our gar­den for our chil­dren.

“Thank you to ev­ery­one who sup­ported the event and made it the suc­cess it was.”
