Come and join us at the opening event for our new seating area on Sunday 8th May at 10.30am.
The new seating area, surrounded by planters, will provide a space for play and story reading, encouraging the children to spend more time in a green space, as well as increasing biodiversity in the playground. The project has been kindly funded by a County Council grant, supported by Councillor Paul Baker, alongside generous donations from Willans LLP solicitors and The Rotary Club of Cheltenham.
Now it’s been built, we’re ready to fill it with beautiful plants and we’d love your help. The event is a chance to meet other Pre-school families, help your children plant some greenery in the new seating area …. and eat cake!
Spotlight on our sponsors
Willans LLP solicitors: Willans LLP solicitors is based in the heart of Cheltenham and provides people, businesses, charities and not-for-profit organisations with personal, practical and expert legal advice.
Celebrating its 75th anniversary this year, Willans is an active member of the Gloucestershire community, supporting several local initiatives every year – from charity fundraising and awards sponsorship, to events such as the Cheltenham Literature Festival.
Recently, Willans became the first law firm to pledge its support to CheltenhamZero, to help the town reach net zero emissions by the year 2030. It also has a green committee in place to champion its environmental policies.
Speaking about the firm’s involvement with the project, managing partner Bridget Redmond, said: “We’re delighted to support the new seating area at Naunton Park Pre-school Playgroup. Over the years, many people living in the Naunton Park area have been clients of Willans, so this feels like a direct way to say “thank you” and to give something back to them and their families. We hope that it will greatly benefit not only the children who attend, but the wider community and local environment.”
The Rotary Club of Cheltenham: The Rotary Club of Cheltenham was founded in 1921 and is still going strong. One of their key focuses is support of young people. To further this aim they have, for example, provided financial assistance to schools using the Life Education facility and also helped with reading practice at a number of local schools. “We are delighted to help Naunton Park Pre-school with the refurbishment of its outside space and send our best wishes for success in the future,” said Paul Clark, Benevolent Fund Treasurer.
