On 4th June Ellesmere Children’s Centre hosted a fabulous 20th birthday ‘Sparkle in Colour’ celebration. Parents present shared their congratulations and agreed that “hard work, dedication and commitment” really pays off.

The centre showcased their work in abundance! Parents were spoilt with colourful performances of traditional Bhangra from Punjabi Roots Academy dancers and Roma dancers. The food and activities reflected the diversity that makes up our success.

The centre had various activities and things to do for all ages and abilities including bouncy castle, African drumming workshops and fairground rides. There were many stalls selling scarves, handcrafted items, sweets and others doing face painting, nail art, and henna. The massages in particular went down a treat with many of our mums.

Traditional foods from across the globe such as curried mutton, ackee and saltfish, Pakistani curry, fresh samosas and kebabs were served alongside yummy homemade cakes and treats.

It was great to see so many people out on a sunny day and enjoying themselves with their families. The final word goes to the past children who had attended who wrote

“We loved being at the nursery!”

It really was a wonderful opportunity to reflect on the past twenty years, and despite the austerity cuts, celebrate the importance of early years care for our local children. Here’s to many more years.

In further good news from Ellesmere Children’s Centre, manager Sharon Curtis (above centre) was shortlisted as a nominee in the Public Service category at the First Women Awards held in London.
