On Saturday, I had the huge pleasure of planting a tree to commemorate the opening of Silsoe Children’s centre in the sensory garden which is attached to Silsoe Lower school.
It was a great day with lots of Mum’s, Dad’s and children in attendance. The centre aims to help young Mum’s in a way Health Visitors used to – for example, with breast feeding and the other bewildering situations which sometimes overwhelm new parents.
For the benefit of the children, there was also a visiting zoo with guinea pigs, snakes and spiders. It was at this point I slightly lost my composure. I quite like reptiles normally, probably because I work with a few, however, the visiting tarantula was a step too far for me I’m afraid!
Thanks to the PTA, governors, Sue, the head teacher, Jane, and all the staff and parents who work together as an excellent community. It was a great day and you should all be very proud of your fantastic fundraising and hard work.
