Blewbury Pre-School is 50

June 17, 2021

Due to Coronavirus restrictions in force at the time, Blewbury Pre-School unfortunately had to postpone its 50th Anniversary Party on 17th July.  We will let you know the new date as soon as possible.

Since lockdown last year we’ve been unable to do any of our usual fundraising events – that’s the best part of two whole academic years where we’ve been unable to fundraise as normal.

We’ve therefore devised the Blewbury Pre-School Lottery to raise funds in a COVID-friendly way, and we’re delighted that the first two draws went ahead as scheduled in July and August. The next draw is due on Thursday September 2nd and the last day for new sign-ups to be eligible for this is Sunday August 22nd.

If you would usually have supported one of our big evening events, or perhaps bought a few raffle tickets or some of our merchandise, could we ask you to please consider joining our Lottery? There are still plenty of numbers available, and if you sign up now you will be eligible for draws from September onwards.

Draws are held on the first Thursday of every month. Forms and full T+Cs can be obtained at the Post-Office or downloaded from Queries can be directed to

For those of you not aware of how the Lottery works, for £5 per month members will be entered into a monthly lottery with a chance to win one of three cash prizes. There will be a 50:50 split between prize and fundraising money.  It’s an annual membership, and we plan to sell a maximum of 200 lottery numbers each year.

We have been genuinely heartened by the positive response to the Lottery so far, and it is clear that so many of our community are committed to ensuring that this pre-school will continue to survive way into the future. Thank you to everyone who has already joined. We look forward to welcoming more of you!
