Pre-school holds party to celebrate 40 years

A COMMUNITY plans to party hard this weekend to celebrate four decades of its pre-school.

A host of activities have been planned as part of Wellbank Pre-School’s 40th anniversary and open day on Sunday (4) at the Pavilion, Bootle.

The fun starts from 1pm with entertainment featuring Millom-based Karen’s Dancers, line dancers, Cumberland wrestling, children’s entertainer Candy Floss and Captain Shaw’s School in Bootle.

Former pupils will be able to take a trip down memory lane with photographs from the pre-school’s 40 year archive.

The open day will also see the official opening of its play area by a special guest.

A spokeswoman for Wellbank Pre-School said: “Organising the open day has taken months but all the children and parents are really excited to welcome everyone, including former pupils, back to the pre-school. We want as many people as possible to come and support the pre-school’s open day, and make it a big success.”

There will be a bouncy castle and a host of activities to keep the children entertained, while a car boot and a variety of stalls should keep bargain-hunters satisfied.

West Cumbrian businesses and groups have donated prizes for the raffle.

Prizes include a six month family leisure membership at Brockwood Hall, a family entrance to Muncaster Castle and Gardens and a family ticket to the La’al Ratty railway.

The spokeswoman said the pre-school wished to thank everyone, including businesses who have donated prizes through to the parents who gave up their own time to help organise this Sunday’s anniversary celebrations.

A bar and food will be available and the car boot is £5 per car. Entry is free but donations are welcome.
