Codicote playgroup moves to a new home
AN all-year round outdoor play area is part of a playgroup’s new home.
Codicote Playgroup has moved into the Parish Centre in the village, which means they can now teach more children.
The building is a much larger and more modern facility for the children to play in as well, so after 36 years of being based at its old home in Memorial Hall, High Street, Angela Ray, business manager for the playgroup, told the WHT they are delighted to be moving.
“The committee of playgroup parents managed to obtain a substantial amount of money through grants to help re-design the outside garden area to provide the children with an all-year round outdoor play area ,” she added.
“In the past we were only allowed to have 16 children at any one time but now can accommodate up to 24, which is great news for the future and especially this term as we have a very busy term,” she added.

The Rev Lawrence Biggs, who is the vicar in neighbouring church St Giles on Bury Lane, concurred. He said: “We are very pleased to be able to welcome the play group to our parish centre as their new home.
“In a village the size of Codicote it is very important that groups work together, and this is another good example of this working well.”
