The theme is SPRING. Work can include:
- Flower pressings
- Descriptive observations of the changes they perceive as they go for their walks
- Anything else they think of
Please upload any contributions the child wants to make to Google Classroom or email direct to: email@example.com. Multiple entries welcome.
Home Close – keep the smiles on residents faces
Tracey Carter, activities coordinator at Home Close (the local care home to which our children visit from time to time) has been in touch to share that the home is on black alert and residents will no longer be receiving visits from families or friends. She has asked if our pupils would be interested in helping keep the smiles on our residents faces through this difficult time by writing letters or stories/drawing pictures.
There will be a post box outside the home entrance. If you live locally, please do consider whether your children can work on something to deliver to them.
Home Close, Cow Lane, Fulbourn CB21 5HB

Local News – Food Hub Cherry Hinton
St Andrew’s Church and the Cherry Hinton Residents Association, who are jointly running the ‘What will Help’ Cherry Hinton Covid 19 Emergency Response, have been asked by the City Council to get a ‘food hub’ into Cherry Hinton.
Wednesdays and Saturdays 2-4pm
The Community Fridge at St Andrews will be open to all, no referrals needed and will be stocked with an admittedly random selection of whatever is surplus in local shops or catering businesses. We will almost always have some bread and fresh fruit and veg, and will also try to stock basic toiletries. We will be stocking frozen ready meals for those who have difficulty cooking. Bring your own bag please!!
With this hub we will also be able to receive direct donations of popular dry goods or toiletries (within sell by date) which can be delivered to the back Church Centre door from 1-2pm on Wed and Sat.
Want to do your bit to help those who are struggling? Financial donations to this local cause can be made via the Resident’s Association website: www.cherryhinton.com.
