If any Mums out there that need that extra little help over the summer, take at look at the message below.All of us at Elsie's want to help families entitled to free school meals who don't get any extra support to feed their kids in the holidays. Three million children are at risk of hunger during their school holidays because they miss their school dinners.
Collect these food bags on Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday between 11.45-12.15 at Elsie's Cafe, Brunswick Place throughout the summer holidays. Children must be accompanied by adult. Anyone with children are welcome :)

Thought this might be of interest to some of you Mums!The DfE is encouraging parents to apply in plenty of time for their 30 hours code for next term.
They are also reminding parents who are already claiming some or all of their child's 30 hours entitlement, that they need to re-confirm their details every 3 months to continue receiving the funding.
Share the Childcare Choices website with parents for further information and to check eligibility for the offer: www.childcarechoices.gov.uk/
