SCHOOL’S out for summer: Following the end-of-term festivities yesterday, the staff at Whitewater School wish all their students a good summer break and every success for the future to their leavers, who include Mrs Emma Floyd. They would like to thank her for all her help last term as interim headteacher. Watch out for new faces in September.

PARK by-laws: Now that summer is (finally) here, it’s worth a reminder of the rules governing the Rotherwick playing fields. Cooking fires are not allowed, including disposable foil BBQs which burn the grass and cause a hazard to children and dogs. No golf, and if you do bring a picnic, please take your rubbish home with you, as food waste attracts animals, wasps and flies to the bins, especially when they get full. Please also ensure that the gates to the children’s play area are closed and latched at all times.

Our playing field is a wonderful village amenity and we would like to keep it as clean and tidy as possible for everyone’s enjoyment.
