Launch! – An Even Better Arbourthorne Project had its big launch in November and was a fantastic start to what we hope will be a long-term project! We welcomed parent volunteers, staff, families, children and potential partners that wanted to be involved supporting the project. We had lots of yummy baked treats by our wonderful parent volunteers, games and activities which had some exciting prizes, and the wonderful market stall where people could wander round and get to know the project and the strands more.
Steering Group – The project couldn’t have achieved nearly half as much as it has without our wonderful team of volunteers! The Steering Group is the driving force for the project and acts as the projects brain, forming all these wonderful ideas and opportunities! The Steering Group is made up of staff from both Arbourthorne Community Primary School, Tiddlywinks Nursery, An Even Better Arbourthorne Project Co-ordinator and Administrator and our wonderful parent volunteers.
Real Junk Food Project Market Stall! – The Real Junk Food Project Market Stall’s have been running every Monday and they are a huge success! The stall is currently being run by a year 5 class to provide fresh food that would usually have gone to waste! The stall is run 3:00-3:25 and families of the school can visit, pay a £1.00 and fill their bags up with whatever delicious treats they like! The children find this a fantastic way to stop food waste and to make sure families can try new foods!
