School Closing Dates, Photo Comp and December Events!

Happy Friday everybody!

Christmas is getting ever closer and we hope you’re feeling the festive spirit – especially after that blitz of winter weather last weekend! We’ve got a few things in this week’s blog – firstly the closing dates for our two local schools, Oakley Vale Primary School and Brooke Weston.

Both schools will be closing for Christmas on 21st December with Oakley Vale Primary School returning on Monday 8th January and Brooke Weston Academy returning on Tuesday 9th January 2018.

You’ll notice that we’re continuing to push our latest Photo Competition – we’re collecting your photos into the New Year so keep getting those snaps in. Some of the pictures we’ve had already have been brilliant! Whether its a fun festive photo with the family, or a beautiful frosty morning in Oakley Vale – capture it with your camera or your phone and send it to us on social media or submit it via the Photo Comp page on our website!

Now here’s a look at some things for you to do this month before the special day – and after!
