Join us for the Autumn Lights – Nov 9

The SOAP Fireworks are taking a break this year but we’ve got a lovely little event up our sleeves for nursery children, their families and the local community.

On Saturday, November 9 we will be holding an Autumn Lights festival in the garden. Children can explore the fairy lights bamboo tunnel (think Blenheim Lights but smaller!) and then warm up by the campfire with some marshmallow ‘Smores’ and hot chocolate.

We will be selling mulled wine, cakes and hot dogs, and indoors there will be face painting and lots of other games and activities, including lantern making.

Advance tickets will be on sale at the nursery office, at £10 per family, or on the door. This price includes entry, all activities and free hot chocolate for the kids. This year Finders Keepers is very kindly sponsoring the event, so a huge thank you to them for helping us.

Can you help with this event?

As always, we are calling on parents and anyone else interested to help us prepare for the Autumn lights and set it up on the day. We really need your help and support to make this event a success, as all funds will go toward nursery and providing vital resources to benefit your children – so don’t be shy!

We need people to make and sell spooky cakes, help decorate and set up the garden, buy and prepare the food and drinks, and help the children with lantern making and other games on the night.

We also need helpers to take people’s tickets when they arrive. If you can help in any way at all, please speak to Cat in the office or Catherine, nursery manager. Tickets will be on sale in the next week or so. Don’t miss out as we won’t be selling tickets on the door.

About nursery: Why your child should enrol with us

We’ve got spaces available at Lake Street Nursery at the moment, and so we’re launching a recruitment drive to attract new members.

There are lots of brilliant reasons to send your child to our nursery, but we think this amazing flyer (designed by Lauren at Big Top Design and very generously printed for free by the lovely team at Parchments Print of Oxford) sums it up nicely!
