Lower Valley Birthday Party

On Saturday 23rd March we celebrated 25 years of North Halifax Partnership!

What a truly wonderful birthday party we had with party games including pass the parcel, face painting, glitter tattoos, tombola and guess the name of the teddy bear and much much more!

We were joined by the fantastic Spike Bonzo!! Who put on an amazing magic show and also live entertainment, which was absolutely outstanding and thoroughly enjoyed by children and their families who came along.

Not forgetting our special guest appearance…. JJ from Cocomelon who came along to join in the fun! What a fantastic surprise that was for everybody!

Our fantastic cook had made a HUGE birthday cake, we sang happy birthday wishes to North Halifax Partnership whilst everybody helped to blow out the candles – it was a great team effort! We also provided a lovely party buffet and free ice creams for all attendees which were gratefully received.

We received some wonderful comments including:

“It was fun! We loved the ice cream and the raffle. The magic man was funny. Hope there is another because I really enjoyed it.”

“Really good event, very friendly staff – so so helpful, very well organised event. My girls both thoroughly enjoyed. No suggestions as everything is spot on. Super happy, always enjoy coming to these events.”

“Great event loads to do, everyone looked like they had great fun. Lovely food and entertainment.”

Recycling at Wellholme Park Children’s Centre

At Wellholme Park Children’s Centre we have various strategies that we have implemented to recycle and encourage our children to recycle too…

In Room 2 and Room 3 there is a recycling paper box which the children are encouraged to place paper in that they no longer need, we also have lots of important conversations with our older children about recycling and why it is important.

A huge part of our recycling journey at Wellholme Park is our allotment where we grow lots of fruits, vegetables and herbs in compost from our compost heap.

We enjoy taking the children down to the allotment to help plant and pick the foods that we have grown!

We have had multiple trips out to our local park including on Global Recycling Day where practitioners and children took litter pickers and collected rubbish for us to recycle. We have also recently had a new bin provided in our staff room with three separate compartments for us to easily recycle plastic, paper and tin/metal cans.


‘Recycling takes little effort on our part, but makes a big difference to the world’
