Water bottles can be tricky to keep clean, especially in hard to reach places like inside the straw. Dunk your children's plastic water bottles in a Milton solution made from 1 Tablet (or 1 capful of Fluid) to 5 litres of water for a minimum of 15 minutes to kill 99.9% of germs, bacteria and viruses.


If your little one was born between 1st September 2018 & 31st August 2019, it is time to apply for their school place. If you are thinking about St.Peter school Bratton please make sure it is ‘Bratton’ in resent years we have had people think they had applied for Bratton and they’ve applied for St. Peters Newport.

Rapid testing demand

We are currently experiencing a high demand for rapid tests at The Place, Oakengates.

Appointments are filling up fast and we understand that some people are frustrated that they cannot get an appointment as quickly as they would like.

We ask that you simply book the next available time slot online and please DO NOT attempt to contact our customer services teams as they do not have access to any other appointments.

Rapid testing is available for those who are not displaying symptoms and need to get checked as they cannot work from home or may be in contact with vulnerable people.

Numbers are high in the following areas:

Newport North & West,
Apley Castle,
Horsehay & Lightmoor,
Admaston & Bratton,
St Georges
If you live in one these areas and are not showing symptoms we ask that you also get a test to help reduce the spread locally.

Book online


We hope everyone has had a nice quiet Christmas 🎄,
Little Chicks is reopening tomorrow, keep safe xx
