Armitage with Handsacre Youth Centre

Despite what you may have seen in the local media, our youth club is NOT run by Staffs County Council and is NOT part of the closure plan for Staffs youth clubs!

We are currently waiting for the completion of the building works at the youth centre, and we are looking forward to starting the club again.

As soon as we have a definate date, we will let everyone know, and we would like to hold an open evening for parents to see the new improved facilities. We are working closely with Loxley Hall School with the aim of bringing the youth club service back to the village.

As always, we would like to encourage new volunteers, if you are interested please give me a ring on 01543 491485.

World Book Day

The pupils at The Croft Primary School celebrated World Book Day.  They all dressed up as characters from a range of books.  Staff joined in the fun too, dressing up as the popular character from the ‘Where’s Wally’ books.  Throughout the day children visited different teachers and took part in activities centred around children’s books.  Prizes were awarded to 1 girl and 1 boy from each year group – visit the school website to see some of the winners.

1st Armitage Brownies

The Brownies are currently residing at Millmoor Pavillion and are looking forward to seeing the refurbishments of the Youth Centre building once work has been completed!

We have a full pack of 24 Brownies and a waiting list, therefore if you have a daughter wishing to join us, please visit www.girlguiding.org.uk/interested or call 0800 1695901

In 2014 we are celebrating 100 years of Brownies! We are hoping to have a stall at village day in June and therefore ask anyone who may have any old photos, memorabilia of Armitage Brownies or old uniform (pre 1984) if we could loan it for Village Day.

Many thanks

Parking

School Run Parking

Staffordshire County Councillor Martyn Tittley has responded to parents who expressed concerns over the hazards caused by cars parked in Chapel Road during the school run:

Its early days yet, but I have been successful with officer support to get the problem as one of the four(4) projects to be looked at by the District parking board for this year. The probable way forward is for a timed parking ban between the hours of 08:30 & 09:30 and 15:30 & 16:30 will be introduced.

A consultation with residents of Chapel Road will take place to ensure that they are happy. If in the mean time the problem increases I will make representation to the school to close the pedestrian access and egress from Chapel Road as a temporary measure until we have or highways solution installed.

Cllr Martyn Tittley.

The Big Breakfast

Earlier this year the children at The Croft Primary School have been learning about the importance of starting the day with a healthy breakfast. They held a special event – The Big Breakfast. All the staff and pupils spent the morning in their pyjamas and came together to share a breakfast of toast and cereal.

Throughout the week the children found out about how a good breakfast gives the brain and the body energy for the day ahead. A quick survey at the school found that the most popular breakfast cereal at the school is Coco Pops with Cornflakes at the bottom of the list.

Check out the school website www.croft.staffs.sch.uk for photographs of the event.
