Hello and goodye

The Happy House family held a special Kidz Club to welcome a party of volunteers from Lytham St Annes High School, Lancashire, and also to bid farewell to Sandra Foulkes, her husband and friends, who have spenta  fantastic few days working with the kids.
The Lytham students, accompanied by teacher Nathan Spacey and his mum Carol Spacey,  are Jordan Rumley, Daniel Tonge, Rachel Buckley, Ellie Thurwell and Olivia Bone. 

They took planes to make with the kids and Jordan and Daniel soon had an aircraft construction factory up and working with our eager boys.

Sandra, her friend June and  Carol, made necklaces and bracelets from beads with the girls.

Some  of the visiting students had a go at hula hooping and everyone shared sweets and biscuits so a good time was had by all. 
The Lytham party, who will be volunteering over the next week, will back at the Happy House tomorrow.
Sue says: "Lytham are with us on Tuesday and Friday they will be doing art drama and music. I have arranged for them to visit other schools in the area.
"On Friday we have to put a presentation on education officials, all the local schools will be entering, so Lytham will be a great help  to our teachers in rehearsing the children.
"On Saturday we are all going to the beach."
Sue added the picture of the toddlers lining up at the door: "It was windy and showery so they had to watch from a distance."
