Preston Primary School had a blast at the TSC London mini marathon this Saturday 🏃 🏃🏻‍♀️ 🏃🏻‍♂️

Several of our students participated in the 1-mile/2.6km run along the renowned London route, starting from Horse Guards Parade, passing Buckingham Palace, and finishing at The Mall! 🇬🇧

Congratulations to everyone who took part, to the dedicated children who did so well and a very special thanks to our very own PSA Faye for making this event happen.

Each child raised funds for the school and received a well deserved medal. Looking forward next year! 🥇

The PSA have created a Wishlist on Amazon to help you help us! We know how hard it is sometimes to get out to the shops or to think of what to buy to donate for the various events we hold, so we've created a Wishlist to take away some of that hassle!

There's something for every budget on there and you can even select to have it delivered directly to us! No donation is too small and we will use these items for raffle prizes, game prizes and possibly in the auction at our 2024 May Ball.

Take a look via the link in our bio.

You may have seen Matt from New Summit Personal Training acting like a drill sergeant with a bunch of us mums on the Green last year (only joking - he’s lovely really 🥰) and thought you might want some of that action too but in a slightly warmer, more private environment! Well, Matt runs group circuit classes on Monday’s at Codicote from 12:00-13:00 and also does 1:1 sessions. There’s a few mum’s (and dad’s!) here that can vouch for him and I know he’d love to see some new faces at his circuit classes! Plus they’re SO affordable at only £8:50 per session!! Reach out to him here if you’d like to know more 😀
