A Festive Thank You


Just popping in to thank everybody who made the Friends Corner Christmas Party and Bazaar the happy and fun occasion that it was. Thank you!

We opened our doors at 11am, and every person, big and small, that walked in was full of smiles, warmth and Christmas joy.

Our Bazaar vendors, with their wonderful crafts, items and talents, managed to make many of those present very happy, as well as solving a lot of Christmas present conundrums. The Friends Corner Bake Sale showcased some sweet and savoury bakes and fed the peckish. Tea and coffee flowed and added extra warmth to one and all.

A highlight for many was the arrival of Father Christmas, who handed out a gift for each child, as well as a juicy tangerine! Thank you, Father Christmas. You really played a huge part in making some beautiful memories that day..

And finally, thanks to all of you. For your presence, your support and, of course, your wonderful children who not only make this club what it is, but who also give us the motivation to keep on working to make it better and better.


Until next time..

May your days be merry and bright..

So, we’ve been delving into the depths of the Animal Kingdom over at the Friends Corner clubhouse, and we have been happily learning about pets, farm animals, wild animals and reptiles.

Images, moving images, crafts, drawings, play acting, singing, stories, and loads more, have helped make this theme a brilliant one over the last few days. With dinosaurs, birds, fish, and a trip to see the turtles on the mend at Archelon still to come, we’ve got some fun days ahead.

As well as the enthusiastically embraced Animal Kingdom theme, our little tiddlers have also been having some fun stepping into Christmas. Oh, the joy of the Yuletide Countdown!

We’ve made pretend snow, cut out Christmas trees, turned pom-poms into baubles, sung festive songs and hung up Christmas lights. And, we are getting VERY excited!

So, let me tell you a little bit about the Friends Corner Christmas Party & Bazaar, taking place at the Clubhouse, on Saturday 13 December from 11:00.

If you would like special Christmas photos of your precious ones, brilliant Usborne Books as gifts for the little people in your life, or you’d just like to browse the stalls of artisans selling their crafts, then we’ve got you covered.

We’ll also be encouraging our friends and members to buy a tantalising taster from the Friends Corner Bake Sale. They’ll be yummy, low-priced treats and beverages, made with Christmas cheer and served with a smile.

Guest of Honour at the Clubhouse on Saturday morning will be Father Christmas himself! He’ll be handing out small gifts courtesy of Friends Corner to all our fantastic kiddies and their pals.

We are also planning on singing, laughing, and getting merry on Christmas.

Join us, and get yourself and your little ones some Ho, Ho, Ho.

Until next time..

Jingle all the way..
