Help for the Snapdragons

IT is going to be a happy Christmas for the Snapdragons Pre-School of Northam after all, thanks to some generous helping hands.

Only a few weeks ago the pre-school was facing the prospect of being homeless after Government cutbacks robbed it of expected funding for new premises and it had to vacate its old home.

Then came new hope when the pre-school was taken in by the United Community Centre on the Morwenna Estate, courtesy of Tarka Homes.

Now help is being offered by local businesses to enable the school and its youngsters to settle comfortably into their new home.

Complete Computing of Bideford is donating a laptop for the children to use and Braddicks Furnishers are donating carpet for the children to sit on.

With hopes that one day new premises of their own might still be a possibility, the pre-school has also been delighted by the offer of the time and expertise of local architects Gale and Snowdon in preparing for the future.

If anyone else would like to help with the future project, perhaps a project manager or with materials, time or labour, Snapdragons would be pleased to hear from you. Email
