Dear Parents

Food from home

Can we please ask that parents do not send any food (except fruit) into Nursery either in children’s bags or arrive at nursery eating. We have several children attending who have severe allergies and certain foods could prove life threatening if they come in to contact with them.  Many thanks.

Friends of Brunswick 

We have some exciting fund raising activities planned over the coming months. Please read on….

Chinese New Year

On Wednesday 21st February at 11.45 and 3.45 we will be holding a Chinese New Year Celebration sale. We will be selling Chinese food (dumplings, boiled eggs cooked in tea leaves and herbs, Chinese snacks), lanterns, Chinese themed biscuits and homemade fortune cookies. Each fortune cookie will contain a fortune message or a lucky winning gold or silver prize winning ticket! Please come along and support us!

(We would be grateful of dog or Chinese themed nut-free biscuits/bakes for this event – not other bakes please as this is a special themed event.)

Spring Fair

Please save the date for our Spring Fair which will be at Brunswick in the afternoon on Saturday 28th April. There will be more information on this in due course.

Recipe book

We are planning to produce an exciting Brunswick recipe book which will also be a fantastic souvenir of your time in this wonderful nursery. For this we would like you to provide some content! At this stage, we are asking for you to provide us with your favourite family recipe – 1 recipe per family. We have provided a Word template which we would like completed electronically and returned to Friday 2nd March. We are also seeking parents who may be able to help with photography, illustration or sponsorship for the book. If any parents with businesses would be willing to consider a modest sponsorship or can contribute their skills and time, please also contact Helen.

New recruits to the FoB committee 

We are always keen to welcome new recruits to the committee. If anybody would like to get involved, in particular new parents to the nursery, please contact

Have a good half term and we will see you all back on Monday 19 February.

Best regards

Sarah Barton

Administration Assistant
