Why the # in #TheLongHaul?

We want people to follow us on Twitter before and during the 12-13th July event.  You can search for conversations on Twitter using #TheLongHaul.  You don’t need to follow anyone to see these conversations!  Just add #TheLongHaul into your tweet and you’ll see what everyone is saying!  Start doing it now and get used to it.  It will mean you’ll know exactly where the cart is throughout the weekend and how much we are raising as we make our way to Winchester!

Pre-School Provider Selected

After a series of interviews, the YMCA has been chosen as the provider of the pre-school in the new hut.  This is an exciting choice, the YMCA already have ten pre-schools (four of which are outstanding) in Hampshire, as well as Fairthorne Manor.

Demolition complete!

A huge thanks to everyone who turned up yesterday to help knock down the inside of the hut.  Mission accomplished and we are now ready for the builders to start in the next few weeks.

10th May – Demolition Day

We are in need of a team of parents to help us demolish the hut ready for the builders to begin their work.  Saturday 10th May is Demolition Day, a BBQ will be provided at lunchtime.

Children are welcome to come along although they will remain your responsibility throughout the day.  Sledgehammers will be provided!

We cannot do this without some help – please sign up for a couple of hours at least.  Email to confirm you’re coming (we need to know how many sausages to buy!) or sign up on the sheet in the Hut from Monday.

Many thanks in advance for your help.
