Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg visits our Hawthorn Avenue site!

Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg visited our Hawthorn Avenue site to speak to staff, parents and children!! The main topic of conversation was the recent introduction of the 2 year funding and how it was benefitting both children and parents.

Throughout the week the children had been busy learning about their country and who runs it, they delighted in making up their own rules that they would put into place if they were ever in charge of the country!!

Mr Nick Clegg spent over an hour at the site where he interacted with the children and took part in some fun activities including making sock puppets!! There were lots of press present and the children were naturals with all the attention!!

Nick was accompanied by Colchester MP Bob Russell and both gentlemen delighted in making a purple handprint tile for our Nannas hall of fame!! The Deputy Prime Minister's visit featured in several local newspapers. A lovely visit was had by all!
