Cakes and hats were all on the agenda at Stepping Stones Under 5’s as part of its Easter celebrations.
The Haverhill pre-school had a cake-baking competition on Friday, April 4 to raise funds to take the children to the cinema and to Frankie & Benny’s for lunch. The competition was open to parents and staff and ended with Haverhill Mayor Roger André awarding the best cake prize to Anne Jessop, with Martina Plumb second and Keeley Skipp third.
The cakes were then sold in the playground, raising more than £100.
Two days later the pre-school had an Easter hat parade, with the best creations judged by Cllr André and the Mayor of St Edmundsbury, Cllr Tim Marks.
In the younger group of children first prize went to Tom Connolly, with Alannah Smyth second and Charlie Hammond third.
The winner in the older group was Tiana Banerjee, with Abbey Hammond second and George Plumb third.
An Easter egg hunt was also held that day, with Colby Pryce and Jessie Bryant coming out as the winners.
Anne Jessop, the pre-school’s deputy, said: “A great day was had by all. It was a great fund-raiser for Stepping Stones.
“Thank you to the fund-raising committee for all their help, thank you to some of staff members that helped on the Easter egg hunt and gave up their Sunday.
“Thank you to the mayor for judging the hat parade. Thank you to all the parents and children that supported us and came to the egg hunt.”
