Sat April 27th

MRA Painting Volunteers Needed!, Mayfield Recreation Association. Thanks to the help of MARNA and the Trent & Dove Volunteers, the refurbishment of the Multi-Use Games Area (MUGA or skatepark) is proceeding well. The next stage is to paint the posts - and the MRA is asking for volunteers from the village to help with the painting at 10 am Saturday 27th April. The paint to do so has been very kindly donated by BuildBase (again, organised by MARNA).

Charles Wimbush of the MRA commented

"Trent and Dove have brought a huge workforce on two days and worked wonders with the MUGA. The rotten jumps. boards, netting have been taken away. The place cleaned and all rubbish removed. T & D were using volunteers and the 8 of them, plus two lorries and clearing equipment. This magnificent effort is equivalent to a large donation to the MRA and will be helpful when we ask for grant funding (they usually ask for matched funding, this may be in the form of money or labour and work in kind). I would estimate the true bill for this work as being: 8 x 2 x 100 ( long half days), plus two vehicles, plus 3 skip charges. Approximately 2,400! I thanked the team from T & D yesterday, assuring them that they had done the Mayfield community a great favour."

A teacher and a nursery nurse teach the nursery children. They are Ofsted inspected and the October 2017 report rated Early Years teaching (and the school in all areas) as good, saying "As a Church of England school, it provides a clear moral and social code, which values everyone equally. Pupils' cultural development is promoted well through the use of additional funding to visit places of interest, such as the local farm."
