Comeytrowe Under Fives Preschool


COMMITTEE NEWS - January 2019

Happy New Year!

It seems to have gone in a flash, but it was great to see so many of you at the children’s “Wriggly Nativity” Christmas Entertainment, and to have the honour of handing out all the great raffle prizes.  We are truly grateful of the many local businesses and individuals who provided us with these prizes; many of whom do so year on year.  Our Christmas fundraising raised over £300, which will be put towards the cost of a trip to Puxton Park trip on 2nd May.  Thank you all!

We had great feedback about the Christmas Party with Malcolm the Magician and our Special Guest (Santa)!  The children had an amazing time with lots of belly laughs, huge smiles and an individual gift to unwrap.  We hope to welcome both visitors back again next year!

This month, we are pleased to be supporting the Comeytrowe Community Village Hall Day; a celebration of all the interesting and varied activities that take place at Comeytrowe Community Hall.  From art classes and karate, to table tennis and keep fit; there's something for everyone.  Be sure to pop in on Saturday 26th January, 1-5pm to see what's on offer and view the Main Hall and Walker Room facilities, which can be booked for private events of all sizes.

On Sunday 17th March, we will also be holding a mega Nearly New Sale of pre-loved toys, games, books, clothes and equipment.  Check our for full details.

Until next time!

Muddy Mondays: Exciting, interactive woodland sessions for the Bears (3 & 4 year olds). We provide waterproof trousers and the children just need wellies and a warm coat.  We enjoy exploring the outdoors and getting muddy!

Fitness Fridays: James the Sports Coach visits on a Friday morning to get us all moving with fun activities to help us stay fit and healthy.

We’re wondering what fun activity we could introduce on a Thursday. If you have an idea, please let us know!


Nearly New Sales are Comeytrowe Under Fives' biggest fundraiser.  We hold them fours times a year and they're a great place to sell your pre-loved children's and babies items and pick up a bargain. 

Everyone is welcome to sell with us; all you need is a unique seller number and a few handy tips.  We get 25% of the sale price and you get the rest.  If you would like to sell with us, please email for a seller number and seller pack.  Our next sales are:

All sales are at Comeytrowe Community Hall from 10am-12noon.  Sellers please drop your items off at 9:00 am and collect unsold items promptly at 12:00 pm.
