Making room for children

by Charlotte Hall

Ellesmere Out of School Project has finally settled into the new Community Room at Byron Wood School, after months of holding the club in the dining hall.

It was open house as mums, dads and children celebrated the move with a huge party, opened by Councillor Jackie Drayton, also a Govenor, who said:

“The new room will enable even more children to enjoy the activities provided by the wonderful Ellesmere Out of School Project.”

There was jelly and cakes all round with party games and a magician. Project co-ordinator, Teresa Clayton, said “The children deserve the best we can give them. It’s great that the children have a much more child-friendly environment to play in – it’s very important that they have somewhere welcoming to play. The club would like to say a huge thanks to New Deal and New Opportunities Fund, and of course to Byron Wood School.”

“We can put our pictures on the wall, we couldn’t in the old room.”

“It’s loads bigger and smells better.”

“It’s fun, we can play and make stuff.”
