The little ones of The Hive Pre-School enjoyed a really exciting last day of term. On Thursday afternoon the building was packed with lots of parents and grandparents who came to watch the children perform their version of the Ugly Bug Ball. The children were dressed up as various sorts of bugs from ladybirds to grasshoppers and beetles too. They danced and acted the story of a sad and lonely caterpillar who was persuaded to go to the ball by some sympathetic beetles. Once he was there he met a beautiful butterfly queen and fell in love and asked her to marry him; wedding proposal duly accepted, the finale was a grand wedding scene.
After the play there was a prize giving of certificates awarded to each child for achievements during the school year. The Pre-School also thanked volunteers with a gift, and the Pre-School leavers presented the teachers with a wall hanging that they had made. There were of course plenty of refreshments served throughout the afternoon with a cake sale that raised £60 for Pre-School funds. Well done to everyone and Happy Holidays!!

St Andrew’s service this week is Holy Communion with Rev Charmion Mann. Charmion has been a regular at St Andrew’s for some time and this will sadly be her last service here as she will be moving to Exeter to retire. Please come and show her some support as this lovely lady takes her leave of us. Thanks Charmion for all that you have done for our church here.
