So far this year our visits have included a trip to the opticians and Butterfly World. Coming up shortly will be a visit to Coleman's Farm and Sandown Airport.

More recently, the children have been learning about "Sports". To help them we held a Sports Day at Sandham Gardens.

We are renting a beach hut for the summer, so will be able to take the children to the beach whenever the weather was suitable.

We plan to erect a purpose-built unit at the back of the building. This will provide much-improved facilities for the children as well as freeing up the church building which can then be used for other things of benefit to the local community. Amonst other things, we are planning new gym equipment and a sensory room.


We aim to establish Bethel as a Centre of Excellence for children and parents and to this end we need to raise about £250,000.

So far we have raised £4,895. Obviously we are applying from various groups for grants to assist us in our endeavour, but we would be extremely grateful for any donations towards this project, however small.
