The Green Fingers Café is about to hold its first session on Friday 3rd February at 9am for an adult only wellbeing session.
If you would you like to come along for coffee, tea, or an informal chat, we’d love to see you. Access to computers and online services will be available and each session will have a variety of activities on offer.
If you wish to take part in a little light gardening, the activity for the next session will be general tidying of the beds outside of Starfish and Dolphin classes. Please wear appropriate outdoor clothing and footwear if you are intending to take part in this activity.
Spaces will be limited to ten people and we are taking reservations now via email with the subject ‘Green Fingers Café’ to firstname.lastname@example.org or by contacting the school office on 01256 764487.
This is an opportunity for adults to come together and regrettably, it is not appropriate for pre-school children to attend. Please let us know if you have any of the following:
- Allergies or dietary requirements, including anything that may affect you when handling plants, or soil etc.
- Any physical or access requirements we would need to be aware of.
Future sessions to add to your diary are:
- Friday 24th March 2023 • Friday 19th May 2023 • Friday 14th July 2023
We look forward to welcoming you to the Green Finger Café.
Have you seen our new blue gates? They are looking really smart and they are level too!
We hope the distinctive blue will help remind parents and carers where “school” starts and the “public” road ends. Please use these as your guide to understand that parking is not permitted on the school site accept for authorised visitors or those with a blue disabled badge and permission following a school discussion. Please do not use either car park for drop off or after school club pick up. Thank you.
