WS Mud Dec18 1

This time the children at Small Is Beautiful pre-school have been enjoying a fantastic mud kitchen - with separate oven - crafted by the talented apprentices at our William Sanders site.

Matt Hutchinson, Matthew Bell and gordon mc kenna delivered the goods on Friday and the kids wasted no time in trying it out - pictured here with headteacher Dani Watkins.

Centre manager Val Morrison said there had been non-stop activity around the kitchen ever since it was delivered on Friday. "It has really hit the spot!" she said.

The suggestion came about because one of the parents, Louise Hookway, lives in Ngataringa Road and receives Matt's monthly communications.

When she saw Ryman's request for community projects she instantly thought of the pre-school. Judging from the pics, her thinking was spot on.

Admiring the craftsmanship, Val said: "It's great and it's so robust. And the bowls fit perfectly on the bench.

"We had done a review of the sandpit to think of ways to make it more interesting and exciting and inviting and this has really ticked all the boxes perfectly, we're so grateful!"
