Friday 23rd November
Some of the topics we discussed covered
1. Village Infant’s Allotment
Ø We talked about lots of practical issues and I certainly learned lots of tips – thanks to the experienced gardeners in the group! Thank you too, for the offers to help lay paving slabs to make a growing bed for each Y1 and Y2 class. I hope we can achieve this before we break up for Christmas.
2. Everyone Everyday Shop [near the fish and chip shop]
Ø Some parents shared how they were enjoying meeting other parents and having opportunities to do practical things such as gardening and sewing.
Ø The Everyone Everyday Shop is open on Tuesday and Thursday [12 – 8pm] and Wednesday [10.30 -6pm]
3. Health and Safety
Ø Many parents are concerned about safety in the playground at the start of the day and home time. Possible solutions that we discussed included a system with arrows guiding people to walk on the right hand side; Reception classes to be picked up before KS1. I will share these ideas with staff at Village. In the meantime – I must appeal to everybody to slow down and take care!
