St Martin’s Sunday Club Newsletter – January 2018
Happy New Year! We hope you all had a happy, relaxing Christmass.
Firstly, a big thank you from all the Sunday Club team to everyone who took part in the new style Nativity – Jesus’ Christmass Party. This took place on the 17th December. This year we combined our only Nativity rehearsal with a Christmass lunch, fun and games and a craft activity. It was very successful and at the end of the session the children were delighted to find a present, from their Church family, to take home. Thank you also to all those who helped out at the Crib Service on Christmass Eve.
With the start of the New Year, it is time for parents/carers to renew their child’s registration form. This is being renewed from scratch. We also ask that you complete a ‘Photograph permission’ form. These forms must be completed as soon as possible to keep us in line with Safe Guarding requirements.
