open inter generational Art competition –

MADE in East Lothian

Deadline: 01 October 2018 at 06:20

we are inviting any mix of the generations to create an artwork either together or independently responding to the work of Sir William Gillies or the townscape and surroundings of Haddington.

This intergenerational art competition is part of Haddington 700 town celebrations. Sir William Gillies was born in Haddington and during his time at Edinburgh College of Art as a tutor he influenced many young artists through his dedication and approach to painting and drawing. With this in mind we thought it would be a tribute to his work to encourage different generations to create artworks together to celebrate Haddington, his home town or take inspiration from the work he created .
We’re looking fro creative partnerships that bring the generations together , mums and sons. Grand dads and granddaughters, Aunts & nephews, Nursery schools and care homes etc – the combinations are up to you.

You can find further information and guidelines by visiting our web-site

The deadline is Monday 01 October 2018 at 06:20.

Nursery end of Term

We are very sorry to have to shut the nursery today, Wednesday. We have unfortunately experienced vandalism of broken windows to the extent in the nursery that glass shards have gone through everything and it is essential that the nursery be deep cleaned before we have access for the children.

Thursday arrangements for Teddy Bears Picnic

We intend to go ahead with the Teddy Bear Picnic but only for a shortened time in the garden. We will have the toilets open. AM Group 10.00-11.00 PM group 1.00-2.00

If you can bring your child to the picnic tomorrow and stay that would be great. Please feel welcome to bring younger siblings.

Friday arrangements

Sorry no nursery deep clean will commence next week.

We are very sorry to end the nursery year in this way but wish you all a very happy and safe holiday.
