Due to some of the parents feeling they do not have to pay their fees, the Carousel Pre School Nursery at The Dome in Walcot may have to close. It is a ridiculous situation that the young children, including mine, who attend and enjoy playing with friends could be the ones to suffer and miss out. Apparently in the past when they have chased parents for outstanding funds, the parents just withdrew their children and went elsewhere (to no doubt do the same thing). I do wonder if some who are not working, see it as a free child minding service while they have their free time to watch Jeremy Kyle. These parents will, no doubt, be the first to complain if the Pre-School closes but show little or no interest in doing anything to help or take part in parent / child activities.

This Psychic and Healing Fayre will be held at the Crossway Suite as usual. It has always been a very busy event, so pre-booking via the website has become a very popular way of securing an appointment time with a particular reader or therapist to avoid a wait or disappointment on the night. However, pre-booking is not essential, and many of our visitors like to come in to see who they feel drawn to. We have a relaxed, informal and friendly atmosphere, welcoming all who choose to visit us.
