Celebrating 40 years!

In July 2014 we celebrated our 40th anniversary of providing childcare in Canterbury. Founded originally in 1974 as a holiday play scheme by members of the local Gingerbread group we are proud of all our achievements to date. Our celebration was marked by a party attended by many of our current and former staff members, supporters and patrons. One of our founder members, [NAME] helped cut our delicious anniversary cake and we were delighted to receive a good luck message from our patron, Joanna Lumley.
