The Beautiful Journey

WILDWORKS in association with Theatre Royal Plymouth & Culture10
02 – 20 June Devonport Dockyard, Plymouth
THE BEAUTIFUL JOURNEY takes you to the last place on earth, a haven at the edge of tomorrow.
WILDWORKS conjures a world where a mythic Queen hosts bizarre entertainment and strange comfort.
This is a surreal world where hairdressers tell your fortune and Kalypso’s sailor lover weaves a boat every day and takes it apart at every night.
Where we experience the memory projector, witness random acts in the shipyard cabaret, dance to the live shanty band and dream of home.
Then the wild ice arrives.
The ice that contains something so extraordinary that it changes everything.

St Mabyn Pre-School

She did it! Gillian Molesworth raised more than £350 for the St Mabyn Pre-School by running the Plymouth Half Marathon! Gillian was pleased with her time of 2:09 for the 13.1 mile course, which ended on the Plymouth Hoe on the later May ank holiday. Some small supporters came and held up a sign that said "Keep Going Gilly" on top of the formidable hill at Saltram. Each of the pre-school children had left a colourful handprint on the sign, so it was just as if they were all there to cheer! THANK YOU to everyone who pledged money for the endeavour - could you kindly bring it to the village shop any time on Friday, June 12 or Saturday, June 13. There will be a collection held behind the till.

St Mabyn Pre-School also has a new phone number, which is 07929 092 088.

St Mabyn Pre-School is holding a Stay and Play session from 9.10am -12.10pm on Wednesday, July 8. We invite everyone with a small child of or approaching pre-school age to come and have a play with us. Please get the word out if you know anyone with kids of this age - we need more! We also run a great a toddler session from 9.10-11.10 every Tuesday in term time.
