We need your help!

We have applied for funding to create an outdoor classroom that will feature a gathering area, mud kitchen, craft area and story circle. To receive the funding we need lots and lots of votes. It’s going to be a tough competition on the day, with lots of organisations and project all competing for a slice of the funding. The projects with the most votes, gets the cash!

Here’s what you can do.

Only adults can vote, so we need as many parents, carers, aunts, uncles, grannies and grandpas to drop-in at the event this Saturday, any time between 12:30pm and 2:30pm to cast your vote for our project. Feel free to spread the word to families and friends too! Full details and a look at our design are attached below.
