Fun was had by all at our Queens 90th Birthday Party, party food all round then onto the fun & games!
49 years ago The doors of the then closed down Westfield Junior school were re-opened by a small committee of local people who were determined that the building should be brought back into use and serve the Local community. The first groups to use the premises were the Westfield playgroup and a few youth clubs in the evening .
On Thursday 21st May we were joined by six volunteers from the National Grid as part of a scheme coordinated by Volunteer Matters. The Sun came out to support the team of volunteers as they worked extremely hard to transform and enhance the garden area that borders the car park. From everyone at Westfield Community Centre we would like to express a big thank you to those involved for all their hard and valued work!
Westfield Community Centre is celebrating after a ‘good’ grade from Ofsted. Westfield Community Centre staff and management were delighted with the result.
Head of Centre, Dave Roberts said “this is a brilliant result for the community centre child care services, not least because we have shown that we have been able to maintain our very good standards during 5 years of austerity and the loss of £100,000’s of financial support from the County Council since we were last inspected. This success clearly reflects the dedication, commitment and professionalism of our child care staff at the Westfield Nursery, Pre-school and Kids Club.’’
The summer term in Preschool is under way and the children have been very busy, growing, studying change, digging (again), painting (with unusual implements), exploring textures as well as role playing a new story about a special dragon!
