Willow Tree Nursery - past events

25/9/17 A Piece of Cake!

Staff and families at the Willow Tree rallied together baking and donating some yummy cakes and treats to sell at our Macmillan Bake Sale.  Children stood in wonder at the mountain of rainbow coloured cupcakes, that topped the vast selection of goodies that were eagerly snapped up!  After a busy fun filled day a grand total of £100 was raised for Macmillan cancer support. Thank you to everyone that helped make the day a complete success and a special mention to Auntie Lorna for organising the event.

                                              Summer Fete Update!

Our 'Best of British' Summer Fete was a huge success.

Cakes, strawberries, cream

and teas flowed whilst the

BBQ sizzled. Woody, Buzz

and the odd Minion made appearances throughout whilst the Phoenix All Stars Majorettes gave a flawless performance. Some of our Nursery children even  joined Chris in the Cannons 2006 Basketball display, proud to show off the skills their coach had taught them.  A massive “thank you” to everyone that supported the event, either by donating prizes, volunteering their time or just coming along on the day.

Without your help none of this would have been possible.  



Friday 18th March 2016

we all had lots of fun raising money for Sport Relief with a sponsored bounce!


Children & staff came to nursery wearing their favourite sports wear, all ready to enjoy a bounce on our spectacular castle! 

Each room had their own sponsor forms and along with donations we managed to raise a grand total of £260.74!

Big "Thank You" for supporting this worthy cause.
