Recipe call out!

Do you have a very special recipe tucked away in your cookbook or drawer? If so the Newstead Preschool would love to hear from you!
After the lockdowns and restrictions of 2020 resulted in the cancellation of their annual fundraisers, the Newstead Preschool’s Parent Advisory Group were left with little fundraising opportunities for the year.
In 2021, with the future of community gatherings and events unknown, they have decided to work with kinder families, Newstead locals and the wider community to produce a ‘Kinder Cookbook’ in the spirit of the fundraisers of old.
Newstead Preschool parent Tika Mapson said they would love locals to share their recipes for the cookbook and the stories behind them.
“We want your recipes of all kinds, favourite recipes, signature dishes, sweet, savoury, unique and bizarre,” she said.
“Tell us why the dish is special to you, where it came from and who you cook it for, plus let us know if you have any special tips.
“In recent years funds raised at our annual events at the British Motorcycle Rally and our Preschool Auction and Trivia Night have contributed to the building of an outdoor stage area for the children to play and create on, as well as the re-rendering and re-painting of the interior of the building,” Tika said.
“With funds raised this year the Parent Advisory Group seek to purchase a new shade sail for our outside play area as the current one is torn and in disrepair and hopefully we can also arrange some new seating for children to use at lunchtime,” she said.
