Rainbow Parents Carers Bulletin - Edition 214

Bulletin 214


Dear Parents, Carers and Members, 

Welcome to our 14th Covid-19 bulletin. 

We hope that you and your families are keeping safe and well. 

Some of our families have asked if we are running any play sessions over the summer holiday. Unfortunately we do not have a venue to deliver anything and are still not able to return to our office base. We have a 'stay and play' session at Monty Hind on the 25th July, see details below.  

We are however, inviting our regular families to our new space 'Rainbow Retreat' in Greasley. We also have plans to offer additional dates throughout August for the wider community to come and visit the site.  We strongly recommend this area for getting outdoors and enjoying some of Nottinghamshire's prime countryside. 

In readiness for designing and planning our space at Greasley, some of our Social Group have been to visit St. Anns Orchard/Allotment this week to get some ideas. They are very excited to be at the steer of this new adventure, whilst learning new skills and creating opportunities for the future. If anyone would like to get involved and support this project, please get in touch. 

We are also recruiting, see details below.
