Toddlers is taking a break for the school Easter holidays, returning on Wednesday April 18th. We have lots of springtime crafts and activities planned. If you would like to come and join us, we offer a friendly welcome and lots of toys and activities for children from birth to school age. We meet in Fenny Compton Village Hall each Wednesday morning 9:45am-11:45am. £2 per family, 50p for additional children including refreshments. First week free. We are also now on Facebook.


Thank you to everyone who supported our Easter Egg hunt, we hope everyone enjoyed this popular event. These events take a lot of hard work and effort to make them successful and, ultimately, raise vital money for Abacus. Whilst we have a lovely new building, the upkeep is on-going, and we still have the toilets to finish and the outside space to improve, so we need to keep fundraising! If anyone has any new ideas for fundraising we would love to talk to you, and welcome any help.
The children have celebrated Mother's Day, learned about big and small, and how to wash our hands properly to get rid of germs.
The children are enjoying the time they spend in reception, listening to stories and singing songs. The time spent in reception helps greatly with the transition into school.
Please call and see us if you wish to register your child or just an informal chat about your requirements. We look forward to seeing you.

Fenny Compton & District WI

Well, I was wrong about March heralding better weather; I hope you have all recovered from the snow. Our quiz team did not progress to the next round of the Warwickshire WI's Centenary quiz, but they certainly did not disgrace themselves either.
David Fry at our March meeting gave a talk about the Marton Museum of Bygones, how it was started by a local resident in the 1960s, is mainly run by volunteers and contains an idiosyncratic collection reflecting Warwickshire rural life over the last 200 years. We were very impressed and hope to visit it later in the year.
Nine of our members attended the Warwickshire Federation Centenary Meeting on 19th March and spent an enjoyable day meeting members from all over the county.
Our next meeting on Wednesday 11th April will be devoted to learning about the Bossa Nova and South American Music! Neville Cooper will be in charge and we are looking forward to an exciting evening.
Guests are welcome to any of our meetings for a small charge of £5 which includes refreshments and a raffle ticket.
We have another night out in April as Bishops Itchington are hosting the Dassett Group's Annual meeting this should be great fun as BI always put on a good show.
A date for your diary is our first Tea and Cakes afternoon of the year. This popular event will be held at 3pm Friday May 4th in Fenny Compton Village Hall. Come along and join in the fun. We also hope to see you at the School's Farmers Market where we will be taking a table.
New members are always welcome. Any information can be obtained form our secretary Deborah Lea on 770 652.

Fenny Compton Scout Group

Our Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers have had a busy start to 2018 with tent pitching challenges, Fairtrade evenings and Ready Steady Cook, with each section working on key aspects of the scouting programme.
The group was proud of our Beavers, Cubs and Scouts who took part in the Warwickshire Scouts and Guides Gang Show, they worked extraordinarily hard to pull off a fantastic performance – it was a great experience for all involved.
World Scout Jamboree Update: Sam and Izzy have been busy with fundraising for the World Scout Jamboree. Sam Allen writes ‘Our training started with a ‘getting to know you day' where we met the other people in the Warwickshire unit. Since then we have had a training camp at Hatton where we took part in a day hike, learnt about health and hygiene and how to keep ourselves safe on social media when publicising the Jamboree. The camp helped us to make friends and to start being more independent.
Our biggest challenge at the moment is fundraising. I've managed to raise 16% of my £3500 goal by car washing, supermarket bag packs, doing odd jobs around the house and delivering Christmas cards. We have lots of fundraising activities planned for the summer including more bag packs, a sponsored cycle ride, summer fete stalls and a community car wash at The Wharf.'
The following are key fundraising activities; it would be great if you could get involved:

Friends of Fenny: To support Sam and Izzy on their journey to the World Scout Jamboree in 2019, for a donation of £20, you can become a ‘Friend of Fenny' – you will receive regular newsletters on their activities and planning for the visit and a postcard from the Jamboree. To become a ‘Friend of Fenny', please email Sarah Allen sarahjallen13@gmail.com
Fenny Car Wash: On 30th June, we will be running a car wash at The Wharf Inn – from £5/car. If you would like your vehicle washing, please come along, and spread the word!
