This year’s Plant and Cake Sale is to take place on Friday 16th May. All the classes have been busy planting to have lovely healthy plants to sell on the day. Thank you to all the volunteers who gave up their time to help with this. With any luck we will have a lovely sunny break to help our plants to grow. The Easter Holidays are a great time to plan dusting off the gardening tools and getting planting at home. Remember we always have room for another plant to sell and that plant you’re dividing might just be the one someone else has been searching for! If anyone would like to get involved or would like to know more please leave your details with Louise or email Sarah at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Many thanks to Birgit, Wioletta, Iwona and Kaori who helped the Senior Infants decorate beautiful eggs!
