FIREWORKS extravaganza: We are just a week away from the annual Hatch Warren Fireworks Extravaganza which takes place on Saturday, November 8.

As well as the display, there will be a disco provided by Hatch Warren's own Mark Halliday from 6.30pm. Tickets are available at £3.50 for adult members and £5 for non-members.

A family ticket costs £6 for members, £10 for non-members and children are £1.

There is an early booking discount and priority entry for tickets purchased in advance of the night.

Volunteers are needed for a variety of tasks in the evening, so if you can spare a small amount of time the office would be very glad to hear from you on 811262.

NEW pre-school: Plans for the much-needed new pre-school for Hatch Warren which will operate from specially built accommodation at St Mark's School in Danebury Road, are well under way.

If you have children of 18 months or younger then this new facility could benefit you and your child.

The recently-formed steering committee needs more parents to join and help to plan and run the pre-school when it opens. This a great opportunity to be actively involved in your child's early education.

For more details, please contact Susannah on 880433.
