It was a weekend of festive fun at the Sandringham estate last week (December 14 and 15) involving singing, fundraising and even a special visit from Father Christmas himself.
Sandringham Café hosted a day packed full of special performances from the children and staff at Sandringham and West Newton Pre-school and the Salvation Army Band while Father Christmas wowed the crowds on his horse-drawn carriage outside.
The little ones gave rousing renditions to festive classics such as Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer and Jingle Bells much to the delight of spectators in the café.
Sian Wells, Chair of the Sandringham and West Newton Pre-school, said:
“We thoroughly enjoyed our morning at the Sandringham Visitor Centre and were particularly impressed with the children's singing! We raised over £99 for the Pre-school, which is absolutely fantastic.
“We are currently in the process of forming a pre-school partnership with the Sandringham and Weston Primary School. This will then enable us to offer families the 30 funded hours of pre-school education that most families are eligible for. We hope to be able to offer this to families sometime in the New Year.”
Ofsted hailed Sandringham and West Newton Pre-school as ‘outstanding’ in all four categories in its last inspection in February 2018.
