Today, we say goodbye to Beverley-Jane Peters as she moves on to pastures new.

Thanks, Bev, we all wish you the best of luck in your new job.

23.02.18 Half Term Playschemes Success

A big thank you to MP Frank Field's Feeding Birkenhead project for funding our two playschemes this week, they were a great success and very popular with the children.
We'd also like to thank our two teams of dedicated playworkers - who appeared to have as much fun as the children during the half term - and to NEO, for providing the food each day.

Here's hoping we can get the funding to do the same thing during the summer.
