Head Lice
Head lice are tiny insects that live in human hair. Head lice are a common problem in school children aged 4 to 11. It’s thought that up to one in three children in the UK may get head lice at some point during the year.
A head lice infestation isn't the result of dirty hair or poor hygiene. All types of hair can be affected - regardless of its length - and head lice can usually be effectively treated with lotions or sprays designed to kill head lice, or by wet combing, using a specially designed head lice comb. Please visit your pharmacist to find out how best to treat head lice.

Harvest Collections
Harvest Festival collections - 26th September - 14th October 2022

We are pleased to share that we will be partnering with a local food bank this autumn. This is a fantastic opportunity to help those in our local community by bringing in a tin (or packet) of food, such as tinned tomatoes, soups or pasta, to leave on our Harvest table if you can. Many thanks in advance for your help.

Will give an update when we have all of the donations and we have dropped off to the food bank.
