Ascott-under-Wychwood Pre-school were delighted to welcome Prime Minister – David Cameron – who visited them today. He started his visit by opening their brand new outside play area – which has been partly funded by a Lottery Grant.
Pre-school Supervisor Pauline Plant said “We are really happy to have the new outside area – the children will benefit greatly from the all weather surface which will allow us to get out in all conditions. We feel very privileged that David Cameron has opened it for us and been able to spend some time with us.”
After opening the play area, David met some of the pre-school staff and the children and looked at some of the displays around the pre-school. He said “I am delighted to be here today to officially open Ascott Pre-school’s newly refurbished outdoor area. I know how much hard work has been put in by everyone for the benefit of the children, their families and the wider community and so I would like to personally thank the staff and committee for making this possible.”
Rachel Chapel – chair of the Pre-School Management Committee – said “We are very lucky to have such enthusiastic parents at Pre-school who have helped support us in our fund raising efforts, in clearing the old area before the new surface was put in and showing enthusiasm for all we do. The grant from the National Lottery helped our dream become a reality.”
The Pre-school term starts again on 15th April – when all the children will be able to enjoy the benefit of the new play area – hopefully with some sun shining on them as well!
