Its getting hot in here.

toddlewaddle.gifThis year has seen a host of fundraising activities from the Royal Greenwich Lions Club who have generously raised £2000 for the Big Red Bus Club. The wonderful contribution from the Lions and Matthew Drewry and Mike Graser (100K Bike Ride) in 2013 has meant this winter the Big Red Bus Club will be hotter than ever with new lights and new electric heaters.

Guides and the Gruffulo

IMG_1130(1).gifA huge thank you to the Charlton Guides who camped over night at the Big Red Bus Club to paint a wonderful nursery inspired mural on the back wall. All those involved were working towards thier community badges. The Charlton Guides meet every Tuesday night in the Big Red Bus Club so pop down if you would like to get more involved.

There's a worm at the bottom of the garden

Wiggly wooA big thanks to all the volunteers who came along today to plant two new borders. As ever it's a real hodge podge jasmine and honey suckle for the nose, gladioli to touch, a riot of colour for the eyes and an apple tree for tasting. Volunteers and thier children took advantage of the glorious weather to catch up with old friends and make some new ones.

Opening Times January - April Term 2014

We will be reopening on Tuesday 7th Janurary at our usual time of 12.30 - 3pm and will remain open throughout the term Monday to Friday 12.30 - 3 pm with some exciting new groups being added at times to be arranged throughout the term.
We will not be opening on Monday 6th as many children have inset days and this has impacted on both people who volunteer and visit the club.

Christmas party success

Today we held our annual christmas party at the Club. It was a fantastic success and attended by 26 children and more parents! A great time was had by all and we'd like to say a big thank you to all those who attended today and have supported us throughout this year, we couldn't operate without your support, and loyalty.

We had games, music, wonderful food (thank you Nadiya) and even a visit from the big man in red himself from lapland giving presents to the children. It really was a great day. We look forward to a great year ahead.
Merry Christmas everyone and a very happy new year to you all.
