A charity pre-school in Mount Hawke is appealing for parents to enrol their children or face losing the service.

Committee members from the Mount Hawke pre-school say that it will close if it cannot fill minimum pupil spaces.

The pre-school, which was started 30 years ago by local mums, needs at least five extra pupils for it’s September intake.

School treasurer, Christine Horsley, said: “We have reached a crucial stage and it is imperative that we recruit extra pupils.

“Many of our pupils moved up to primary school last year and as such we have been left with several spaces we have to fill.

“We have fantastic staff and new facilities which have been up-dated over the past 18 months, so it would be a shame it local children couldn’t take advantage of it.”

The closure of the pre-school, which is held in Mount Hawke’s Methodist chapel, would also affect other activities in the village.

Mrs added Horsley: “The chapel depends on the income from the pre-school, so if we close other community groups, such as the karate club, would move out of the village.”

Mount Hawke pre-school is open Monday to Friday for children aged between 2 and 4 years.
