Mud pies and grass cakes on the menu
IT WILL be mud pies, grass cakes and leaf omelettes on the menu for the children at the Fellowship of St Nicholas (FSN), London Rd, St Leonards on Sea from now on!
On Thursday 24 May, Roy Wake President of Hastings and Bexhill RFC officially opened the Wooden Spoon Play Garden in the presence of Bob Rogers Chair of Wooden Spoon Sussex region, their committee members; the Board of Trustees of FSN, supporters and staff of both charities.
Wooden Spoon has completed the ongoing project to develop the nursery’s play facilities. A mud kitchen, a bug nesting box, wobbly bridge, growing beds and a willow tunnel were added to the existing apparatus in the garden area. The children were obviously enjoying the new equipment and getting full use of the tools and pans.
Hastings and Bexhill RFC have been great supporters of the charity in recent years. This is Wooden Spoon’s second donation to FSN having built the Multi Use Games Area in 2009.
After the opening ceremony the guests were entertained to a delicious finger buffet, not mud pies, in the Board Room which houses a display of the history of the charity.
